After losing their opener against Melbourne Victory, Western United have won back to back games.
The most impressive victory came against defending champions Melbourne City in the A-League last week, with Dylan Wenzel Halls scoring the decisive goal.
The 23-year-old has scored all of Western United’s goals so far and his impressive form could be a massive threat to Brisbane Roar on Saturday.
However, Western United’s winning streak came to an end when they suffered a defeat against Wellington in the FFA Cup round of 32 days ago.
John Aloisi’s side are the clear favourites heading to Saturday’s game against bottom-dwellers Brisbane.
Possible Western United line-up
Jamie Young; Ben Garuccio, Leo Lacroix, Tomoki Imai, Josh Risdon; Steven Lustica, Neil Kilkenny; Connor Pain, Alessandro Diamanti, Lachlan Wales; Dylan Wenzel-Halls
Brisbane Roar are off to a struggling start in the A-League this season, failing to register a single win in three games.
The bottom-most club are coming on the break of a stalemate against Adelaide United that stretched their winless run to three games.
Saturday’s game would be a great opportunity for Brisbane to open their account, however Western United’s current form presents a greater threat.
A victory is also crucial for the visitors, as they will face Sydney FC in the FFA Cup quarter-finals in two weeks.
Possible Brisbane Roar line-up
Macklin Freke; Corey Brown, Tom Aldred, Scott Neville, Jack Hingert; Jay O’Shea, Ville Matti Steinman; Kai Trewin, Rahmat Akbari, Nikola Mileusnic; Cyrus Dehmie
Western United 2 – 0 Brisbane Roar
