When: Saturday 16 February, 7:50pm
Where: Coopers Stadium
Bet: Bet On This Match HERE
Adelaide is unbeaten in its last seven games after a draw against Melbourne City last weekend and would love to consolidate fourth spot with another win here.
The Wanderers finally ended a winless streak that dated back to December 7, funnily enough bookended by victories over the Mariners.
Considering the Mariners fortunes this season it’s hard to get too excited over the Wanderers win last week and Adelaide is a big step up in class.
Adelaide has scored two goals in both matches against Western Sydney this season and should be able to make it three here with another win.
