Western Sydney Wanderers head coach Jean-Paul de Marigny (JP) is driving the Red & Black to be physically and mentally stronger ahead of tomorrow night's clash against Perth.

The Red & Black's previous match against Wellington marked the first official win under JP's reign with the result proving to be a lifeline for the Wanderers Finals hopes. 

The Wanderers now sit just outside of the Top Six and need to collect as many points as they can in their next three fixtures to earn a place in the Finals.

"We were aggressive and well-organised against Wellington," said JP. 

"We nullified them and stopped them from playing their game." 


JP and his men have now had three days to prepare for tomorrow night's clash against Perth Glory, a tight turnaround which is being embraced by the squad. 

"Playing games on a regular basis is a plus. Physically and mentally we are only getting stronger," explained JP. 

"It's about quickly improving our game with and without the ball.

"Keeping the players as fresh as possible and our conditioning coach is very experienced at that.

"Our job is 24/7. For us it's making sure we get the details right. It's a period where you spend less time with your family and it's all about football."
