Sutton at home at Wanderers

Striker Rosie Sutton says she feels right at home in Western Sydney and the team has their sights set to secure a win against a dangerous Brisbane Roar on Friday night. 

Sutton scored the last-minute winner in last Friday's Westfield W-League clash against Adelaide United and played a very different role coming off the bench. 

"I started out on the bench which was a bit different for me," admitted Sutton.

"I was ready when I came on. I got the goal and I got the win for the team. I was very happy. 

"Rich (head coach Rich Byrne) told me to be an impact player so I think I did that when I came on."


Sutton made the great journey from Western Australia to Western Sydney during the off-season, signing from Perth Glory, and has felt right at home at the Red & Black ever since joining the club. 

"I love it here at the Wanderers and they really care about the Women here," said Sutton. 

"I'm feeling very at home at Western Sydney. 

"We had six weeks together in the pre-season which not a lot of other clubs had, so we have had a lot of time to gel as a team. 

"There's no big characters in the team and no big egos, so everyone is friends and all go to coffee after training. 

"It's a really nice team environment."

The Wanderers Westfield W-League team will be looking to repeat last Friday's heroics against Adelaide United when they host Brisbane Roar this Friday night at Marconi Stadium. 

"Brisbane won their first game and last week they faced a red-hot Perth team," said Sutton. 

"They have a lot of good players, good Matildas and a great keeper so it's a bit of a dangerous team for us but we will be up for it."
