Is that St George Stadium still usable? Last time I went past there a few years ago you could see the tumbleweed growing out of the grandstand. It is a very old stadium. Lots of history though.

NPL Preview: WSW look to extend lead at top of table

We're taking on St George in an attempt to extend our lead


Friday, 1 July 2016


Tariq Maia’s sensational last minute winner against Bankstown City last Saturday proved to be a decisive strike with the Wanderers claiming all three points at the death, climbing to outright first on the competition ladder.
KICK-OFF: St George v Western Sydney Wanderers. 7.00pm, Saturday 2 July at St George Stadium
The night got better as Sydney FC slumped to a home defeat against Northern Tigers, and with the Sky Blues set to face third-placed Bankstown City at Jensen Park on Sunday the door is open for the Red & Black to extend their lead at the top the evening before when they travel to St George.
Having finished last in the 2014 NPL1 and third-bottom in the 2015 NPL 2, if the Saints are to mount a finals stand in this year’s competition a result on Saturday against the Wanderers would be deemed imperative.
Only nine rounds left of the PS4 NPL2 campaign remain with St George four points off sixth-place but the side have won two of their last three and scored twelve goals in the process on the back of big wins over North Shore Mariners and Central Coast.
Former Central Coast youth squad member Stevan Ilic is one to look out for on Saturday night having netted eight goals this campaign while talented young attacking midfielder and former Saints youth player Bruno Pivato has enjoyed a fine season in the top grade also.
The Wanderers cruised to victory over the weekend’s opponents in their Round 5 date at Blacktown Football Park where goals from Liam Youlley, Brenton Fox, Lachlan Scott, Mario Shabow and Tariq Maia led to a 5-0 win.

Wanderers stay top after St George draw


Sunday, 3 July 2016


The Western Sydney Wanderers remain top of the NPL 2 ladder after a gritty 2-2 draw against St George on Saturday night.

The Red & Black opened the scoring through Kyle Cimenti late in the first half before goals either side of the break from St George saw the home side turn the tables. 

Cimenti’s second of the evening with just minutes remaining rescued a deserved point for Trevor Morgan’s side and ensures that the Wanderers remain top of the league for another week.

Clear-cut chances were few and far between in what was a physical match on a bumpy St George Stadium pitch. 

Matthew Symes did well to palm away an early St George chance as neither side was able to grab the ascendancy.

The game sparked to life when Cimenti broke the deadlock with the opening goal of the game, the striker racing onto a ball in behind the St George defence, nodding it past the onrushing keeper and slotting home into an empty net. 

Just as the Wanderers looked to be heading into the sheds with the advantage, Dimitrios Zakilas found an equaliser for St George after the Wanderers failed to clear their lines from a set-piece.

After the break, the Wanderers began to enjoy the bulk of possession but the home side were beginning to lift, testing Symes in goals on a couple of occasions. 

St George’s persistence would soon pay off, with Zakilas prodding home for his second of the match with a little over 10 minutes remaining. 

The Wanderers continued to spray the ball well, Keanu Baccus in particular providing real impetus in the centre of the park.

As full time approached, Cimenti popped up in the six yard box to find a deserved equaliser for the Red & Black. 

The Wanderers continued to push for a late winner, Ramy Najjarine coming close after a mazy run but the match would end with both sides walking away with a point. 

The result keeps the Wanderers at the summit of the table ahead of next Saturday’s home fixture against the Macathur Rams.
