Dean Heffernan has named his squad set to travel to Latrobe City Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Equal leaders on the competition table, the Red & Black will be looking to maintain their stunning start to the season as they chase a fourth straight win from as many games.
But this game against the defending W-League premiers looms as perhaps their toughest test of the season to date, especially given they have managed just one win in 11 encounters with the Victorians.
The Wanderers’ only win against Victory came during the 2015/16 season, though they have also managed five draws.
Still, this is a far different Wanderers side with the club having invested heavily this season in a squad full of quality players from overseas and locally.
