Incredibly, our Liberty A-League side finds itself in an exciting second place after six games, seven points clear in a finals spot as well. Albeit impressive, this strong start to the season has not been without its troubles, with a couple of narrow wins and an undeserved loss to the Victory in December.
However, the girls will have an exciting opportunity as they take on the league leaders in Sydney FC, who has proven to be a free-scoring and dominant side, scoring 23 times in seven games and holding the majority of possession in every game this season. They are certainly a worthy opponent in any title race, and it promises to be a smashing game.
If we are to come away with a win Saturday afternoon, we will be in a promising position; 1 point below first with a game in hand. If the pendulum shifts in the other direction, we’ll be hard pressed to keep up the pace.
