The Western Sydney Wanderers face one of their biggest tests in the PS4 NPL2 this season when they take on Marconi Stallions this Sunday at Popondetta Park.Sitting in fourth place and undefeated since Round 4 with four wins and two draws, Marconi Stallions will feel confident as they take on the second-placed Wanderers at 7pm.
While the Red & Black defeated Marconi 8-0 in pre-season, that result was skewed with a first half line-up consisting largely of Hyundai A-League players who were competing to maintain match fitness.
Sunday’s match will be a much closer affair with no indication which team will have the advantage going into the game.
Freshly signed to a first team contract, Lachlan Scott will be on Marconi’s radar as the man to watch as the centre forward has an impressive 12 goals in ten matches in the NPL so far.
Marconi’s big signings and former Hyundai A-League players Sean Rooney and Mirjan Pavlovic are in form and they will look to add Wanderers to the impressive scalps they’ve already taken this year including Central Coast Mariners and Mounties Wanderers.
Kick-off is 7pm this Sunday at Popondetta Park, Emerton. 20s are at 5pm with 18s at 3pm.
