Western Sydney Wanderers vs Adelaide United A-League Preview and Team News - Wanderers aim for third straight win

Wanderers host Adelaide on Wednesday night

Western Sydney Wanderers target a third consecutive victory when they play host to Adelaide United to conclude mid-week A-League Round 15 action on Wednesday night.

Josep Gombau experienced a tumultuous start to his reign as Wanderers manager, but it seems the premiership-winning coach is starting to find his feet - which might not bode well for his former club on Wednesday night.

In fact, there’s many similarities with Gombau at the Wanderers when compared to his stint at Adelaide - the most obvious being it took him a couple of months for his vision to be instilled at the Reds, but once it was, they were almost unstoppable as they surged to the A-League premiership.

Will the same happen at Wanderland? Since copping a 4-0 hiding by the Jets just before Christmas, the Wanderers have won their last two games against Melbourne City and Brisbane Roar to climb into the top six.

WSW are just three points behind Adelaide in fourth with a game in hand - and if they can register another win on Wednesday night, they will all of a sudden be well-positioned to make a charge towards the top four.

Adelaide meanwhile have been very up-and-down over the last month, but they’ve managed to hold onto fourth spot in any case.

The Reds suffered a disappointing 2-1 loss to struggling Brisbane a fortnight ago, but they bounced back in their last outing to conquer Perth 3-0 away from home.

Danish star Johan Absalonson showcased his class at the start of the season, and his return should lift the Reds to higher levels, with the winger already getting his name back on the scoresheet in the win over Perth.

Adelaide won 2-0 in their previous meeting this season, but this is a different Wanderers outfit. I’m still not entirely convinced over Adelaide and I think they will start to struggle as the back-end of the season approaches. The Wanderers are confident and are finally starting to believe in Gombau - back them to claim the win at home.

Stats


  • Wanderers are winless against Adelaide in their last four encounters
  • Adelaide won 2-0 at Coopers on November 26
  • First clash between the sides at ANZ Stadium
