Westfield W-League Round 13 | Preview

Westfield W-League Round 13 | Preview

Canberra United has the chance to finish the 2019/20 Westfield W-League season with a statement when they travel to Brisbane to take on fifth-placed Roar on Sunday afternoon (23 February). 

United snapped a four-game losing streak with an emphatic 3-1 win over Adelaide United last Sunday and have the chance to put a nail in Roar’s top-four hopes with all three points. 

It will also be the final game in charge for coach Heather Garriock, which will give even more motivation for United to put on a strong performance at Lions FC Stadium.

Brisbane Roar are still smarting from their tough 4-2 loss to Perth Glory away from home, as the side failed to close the gap on the top four. Three points separates Roar and a spot in the finals, with a final round clash against Premiers Melbourne City in the last round.

Canberra and Brisbane met earlier this season in Round 4, where Roar grabbed a win on the road thanks to goals from Tameka Yallop and Hayley Raso. Both goalscorers will not play this Sunday, as Yallop battles a strain and Raso now an Everton Blue. 

This match looks destined to be a fiery one with plenty of goals so don’t miss any of the action. 

Brisbane Roar vs Canberra United

 

Thoughts from coach Heather Garriock | 

“We haven’t won two in a row this season so that is our goal going into a tough away game against Brisbane. We need to focus on our transition moments and our defence. I think if we lock up the midfield, especially with the quality of Brisbane’s midfield, we will have a chance. 

“The morale in the squad has been excellent and everybody is upbeat and looking forward to the game.”
