WWL Preview: Brisbane Roar v Canberra United
All the team news ahead of the title contender's clash to be played on Tuesday
If it-s entertaining and fast-paced women-s football you-re after, then look no further than the match between first-placed Brisbane Roar and third-placed Canberra United this week!
Brisbane-s performance on Friday night proved their position as the league leaders is no accident, beating Adelaide 3-1 with only 10 players after Karla Reuter was sent off in the 35th minute.
The first crunching tackle set the tone for the match, and it was a competitive battle right up until the final whistle.
The Roar-s classy style of football was the difference in the end, with Elise Kellond-Knight the stand out, providing world-class service from the wing and also scoring a goal.
However, if the Roar delivers anything less than classy football this week, it won't be enough to knock over this well-structured Green Machine outfit.
Canberra's striker, Michelle Heyman, was at it again in the 1-0 win over the Jets on Saturday.
The prolific goal scorer notched the match winner in style with a cool, well-placed finish off a counter attack.
Sally Shipard and Emily van Egmond were a class above the rest, controlling the midfield and outclassing their opposition throughout the match.
As for the winner of this exciting clash, it-s anyone-s guess. One thing is for certain, this game will definitely be action packed!
The match has been rescheduled to Tuesday 21st December at 3PM
