NPL Preview: Macarthur vs Wanderers

The Western Sydney Wanderers NPL 2 team will be aiming for their third win in four games on Saturday night when they travel to Lynwood Park to take on Macarthur Rams. 

The Wanderers last trip to Lynwood Park was a memorable one, as doubles from Kosta Grozos, Mohamed Adam and John Roberts, plus a Lachlan Scott strike, helped the Red & Black to a convincing 7-2 victory.

Macarthur are currently in 10th place with one win from their opening three games and the Rams will be keen to make amends after a 3-0 defeat to North Shore Mariners last weekend. 

For the Wanderers, Daniel Wilmering will be one to watch after making his Hyundai A-League on Sunday against Wellington. 

The 18-year-old joined the Wanderers Academy in 2016, breaking into the NPL 2 first grade team last year after being a part of the u18s side that won back-to-back Grand Finals in 2016 and 2017. 

Able to play as a left-back or in midfield, Wilmering was a member of the Wanderers squad that reached the 2019 Foxtel Y-League Grand Final.

Fabian Monge is another player to watch on Saturday. The central midfielder made an instant impact when he joined the Red & Black, scoring on his debut against Canberra United in Round 1 of the Foxtel Y-League 2017/18 season. 

Still only 17 year's old, Monge has already played for the Young Socceroos and has also started in each of the last two Foxtel Y-League Grand Finals.
