How to watch Westfield Matildas in Westfield W-League Round 8

It's a massive round in the Westfield W-League with a host of Westfield Matildas hoping to star for their clubs, although one will be missing through suspension.

Katrina Gorry's red card for Brisbane Roar last weekend means she'll miss Thursday night's clash with Western Sydney Wanderers.

Brisbane Roar v Western Sydney Wanderers
Thursday, 7:30pm AEDT

Katrina Gorry sits out this crucial clash for the Roar after receiving two yellows in Brisbane’s 4-3 win over Melbourne Victory.

That leaves Clare Polkinghorne and Mackenzie Arnold to continue the momentum, and it might just be possible as Brisbane takes on a Western Sydney Wanderers side yet to win this season.

Dan Barrett’s side are showing promising signs, having scored in their last two fixtures and appearing to build momentum.

The last time these two sides met, Carson Pickett’s free-kick on 39 minutes snuck past Jada Whyman for Roar’s first win of the campaign.

The stakes are just as high this time around because, depending on other results, a win for Brisbane could take them to the top of the ladder, equal-first with Melbourne Victory.

Perth Glory v Sydney FC
Friday, 6:30pm AEDT

Sam Kerr goes into Perth Glory’s clash against Sydney FC in some scintillating form.

The Westfield Matildas forward has seven goals in five games, scoring at least one goal in each game she’s played.

She’ll have to be at her very best at nib Stadium if Perth is to overcome a Sydney FC side in some stunning form of their own.

The Sky Blues have scored 10 goals in their last two fixtures courtesy of 5-1 and 5-2 wins over Brisbane Roar and Adelaide United respectively.

Caitlin Foord grabbed a hat-trick against Brisbane, while Princess Ibini has three goals in her past two games. Add to that Chloe Logarzo’s two assists in Round 7 and we have a massive game on our hands.

Lisa De Vanna will have a point to prove this week, while Alanna Kennedy has been pivotal in Sydney’s turn of form.

Perth Glory are now the only unbeaten team remaining in the Westfield W-League, something Sydney FC would surely love to end.

Adelaide United v Melbourne Victory
Friday, 7:30pm

It’s the battle of the former unbeaten sides as Adelaide United host Melbourne Victory at Marden Sports Complex on Friday night.

Michelle Heyman grabbed an assist in her 90 minutes against Sydney FC and now has two to her name for the 2018/19 Season.

Her Reds side take on Laura Alleway and Emily Gielnik in the Melbourne Victory ranks.

The league-leaders are licking their wounds following a 4-3 loss to Brisbane Roar last weekend.

Gielnik grabbed her second goal of the 2018/19 Season, the midfielder now with two goals and an assist in six games.

Alleway, though not contributing in attacking stats, has won 60% of her tackles and has a pass completion rate of a tick over 75%.

Will one of these sides go two losses in a row, or will the honours be shared at Marden Sports Complex?

Laura Alleway

Melbourne City v Canberra United
Saturday, 5pm AEDT

Only a point separates Melbourne City and Canberra, but such is the tightness of the Westfield W-League, a win could catapult either side well into finals contention.

City, coming off the back of a bye, won their last fixture back in Round 6 when they taught Newcastle Jets a lesson on their own patch.

Westfield Matilda Kyah Simon has returned from injury with a goal against Adelaide United and she is supported by Tameka Butt, Elise Kellond-Knight and Lydia Williams.

Canberra United’s sole Westfield Matilda Ellie Carpenter scored in her last game. That 2-2 draw with Western Sydney Wanderers in Round 6 would have felt like two points dropped for Heather Garriock’s side, particularly when one considers the chances they made and their overall dominance.

With only five games remaining for each side after this fixture, wins are of the utmost importance.
