Westfield W-League 2016/17 Round 13 Preview


Adelaide United Women Head Coach, Huss Skenderovic says his team remains dauntless as they prepare to visit Perth Glory Women in Round 13 of the Westfield W-League at BGC Stadium on Sunday night.

Adelaide United Women claimed their first win of the season in astonishing fashion last weekend, in what will be a definite confidence booster ahead of their last two games of the campaign.

In the corresponding fixture between the two sides, the Western Australians were able to override Adelaide, as they registered a 1-4 win, courtesy of a dominant Sam Kerr in Round 7 at Elite Systems Football Centre.

Last match day, a rampant performance from the United Women saw them hit a W-League and Club record of 10 goals past Western Sydney Wanderers Women, which resulted in a relentless 10-2 victory, following the vivacity of Sofia Huerta and Adriana Jones with hat-tricks, as well as a brace from Racheal Quigley, and Alex Chidiac and Ally Ladas.

Meanwhile, Perth Glory missed an opportunity for a top of the table spot, in a 7-2 defeat against Canberra United Women.

United Women Boss, Skenderovic reiterated the euphoria surrounding the Club following their incredible win last weekend, and how it has produced more confidence.

“It was very overwhelming to score ten goals last weekend against Western Sydney Wanderers, but the win and dominant attack was definitely coming,” Skenderovic said.

“It definitely made up for the course of the year, and the games we should have won due to our lack of execution in the final third.

“We always knew the strength in our abilities, and now we have proven to that to the rest of the W-League.

“I am very happy with how far the team has come, and we are looking very good in regards to our next match, and future.”

Adelaide United Women are confident ahead of their trip to Western Australia to face a dangerous Sam Kerr and Perth Glory, but are aware their opponents will be out the seek revenge on their defeat to Canberra United last week.

“We are confident ahead of facing Perth Glory, but we must be careful as they will come out with force, as they will want some revenge after their heavy loss last week,” Skenderovic said.

“They will definitely be a strong side, and will be tough to beat, but I believe that it will be a different game to that of our last meeting with them, even though we will be on their home turf.”
