    Wanderers Bounce Back Over Mariners


    mack

    The Western Sydney Wanderers improved to complete a professional 2-0 win against the Central Coast Marinres tonight.

    Both sides began the game with a desire to attack, Michael McGlinchey could have opened the scoring within minutes, but after a good near post run he hit a shot straight at Vedran Janjetovic. Jaushua Sotirio broke down the right flank for the Wanderers, but stuck in two minds, he put a cross in front of an offside Riera instead of taking a shot at goal.

    After half an hour Riera had a free header after getting onto the end of a free kick, but he touched it over the crossbar. The typically poor refereeing standards continued to hurt the Wanderers, as Matt Simon decided to stamp on the foot of Keanu Baccus off the ball, but apparently no action was taken, nor did the VAR intervene like it should have. 5 minutes before half-time Riera had another free header, this time after Josh Risdon hung the ball on the 6 yard box, but the finish was a repeat of the earlier ball over the bar.

    Deep into the two minutes of stoppage time the Wanderers finally put the ball in the back of the net. After winning a late corner, the Mariners couldn't clear the danger and it was worked around the edge of the area until it reached Keanu Baccus. He lined up a strike and blasted the ball through a sea of bodies and left Ben Kennedy flailing at thin air.

    Jack Clisby nearly made his introduction to the game for the Mariners after an hour a scoring one. After stepping onto the pitch, he took a free kick a long way out and nearly embarrassed Janjetovic by shooting at the near post, the ball almost bouncing over the hands of the keeper.

    Bruce Kamau set the stage for the Wanderers to double their lead, Riera & Baumjohann combined on the edge of the penalty area, before Riera fed Kamau the ball to shoot from long distance. Ben Kennedy made a hash of the shot, spilling it to his right. Jaushua Sotirio pounced on the rebound for a simple tap-in.

    The Mariners huffed and puffed but they had little penetration up front, and the Wanderers ran out as comfortable 2-0 winners. It elevates the Wanderers into the top 6 pending other results on the weekend, and sets them up for a Sydney Derby game next week.

    After a 3-0 defeat they will be looking to bounce back but MB will be watching that game a few times to see where SFC weakness lied and try to take advantage of that.. Hopefully this is worrying signs for the smurfs

    The one obvious weakness they have is people running with pace at or behind Van der Linden.

    The Sotirio derby is upon us.

    Surely Kamau can do that job with Roly on the left wing.

    That loss has really shaken Sydney and I think it's also a bit of a realisation that they are no longer the untouchables. They are still a quality side but this is looking like being the most evenly contested derby in a while. Probably our best chance of winning in some time.

    Two questions:

    1) Is Roly confirmed fit for next round? (Hope so - he has looked hungry and been potent this year)

    2)  Will Babbel rock the dandy threads again? (Hope so also - to give Foster and Honda some competition for Australian football's best dressed)

    Watched the game again on TV

     Baumjohann is a sexual footballer 

    He is class, i can see why Babbel asked him to come play for us and will be even better when he has some more talent around him next season (fingers crossed he signs on for another season)
