Adelaide United-s Women-s Team will be hoping to build on consecutive wins, as they go up against bottom side Perth Glory at Members Equity Stadium in Round 4 of the Westfield W-League.
The ‘Ladies in Red- upset league leaders Sydney FC at Hindmarsh Stadium at Hindmarsh Stadium in their last outing, to put themselves equal on points with four other sides in what is proving an extremely even season after three rounds.
This Saturday, United-s W-League Team will face a Perth Glory side that will be determined to register its first win, while Adelaide look to pick up their first win on the road.
Coach Mike Barnett has a full quota of players to choose from against the Glory, goalkeeper Emma Wirkus and midfielder Donna Cockayne replacing Kristi Harvey and Racheal Quigley.
The team-s two victories have come in the way of 3-2 results, The Reds with the second most number of goals scored but also the second most conceded.
Barnett will be looking to sure up a defence, led by Captain Di Alagich, against Perth while he will be hoping the likes of Sharon Black, Victoria Balomenos, Sandra Scalzi and Stephanie Tokich can continue to threaten up forward.
Tokich was troubled by a knee problem in last Sunday-s win over Sydney FC but the 18 year old is expected to be available.
Heading to Perth will be a tough test for United-s Women but with only 10 rounds in the Westfield W-League season, three points across the Nullabor will be valuable in keeping touch with the top four.
Kick-Off is at 5.30pm (ACDT).
