The NRMA Insurance Western Sydney Wanderers go into their Round 5 match against Perth Glory this Sunday on the back of their second best start to a season.Only once in the club’s history has the Red & Black collected more points in the opening four matches of a season: back in season two when two draws and two wins saw the Wanderers with eight points.
With a total of five points from one win and two draws, the Wanderers are in their second-best ever position after four games.
Notoriously slow starters, the Red & Black have always finished strongly with one Hyundai A-League Premiership, one AFC Champions League and three Hyundai A-League Grand Final appearances.
And it’s not just the results that are breaking early season records, the Wanderers’ goal tally is the second-best haul the club has had by this stage: falling one goal short of the six strikes scored in season two.
History is on the Wanderers’ side as they head into Round 5 with the Red & Black never losing their fifth match of the season: in fact they have a record of three wins and one draw.
At this stage last season the club started a seven match winning streak.
You can watch the team see if they can add to their early haul of points and goals this Sunday as they take on Perth Glory at nib Stadium. Tune into Fox Sports 505 or listen on ABC Grandstand and Hawkesbury Radio.
