They played together ten years ago but on Saturday they will face off against one another in the Sydney Derby at Allianz Stadium (kick off 7:45pm).

Sydney FC starlet Terry Antonis and Western Sydney Wanderers top goal scorer Tomi Juric were once team mates at Sydney Olympic, setting up each other and scoring goals for fun, however Antonis knows now that he faces a stern test to recreate those moments against Juric-s Wanderers outfit on Saturday.

“Me and Terry go back to Under 13-s at Sydney Olympic where we played together,” Juric said.

“He was only 11 years old he was stepping up a bit. We played a season there together, we had some good combinations and goals.”

“Yeah I think I set a few up for him,” Antonis replied.

“It was good back in the day when we used to play together and with Peter Triantis from Sydney FC as well in our team, we had a good little team.

“It-s going to be tough though on Saturday,” Antonis continued.

“They-re a good side but we-re at home so hopefully we get the points.

“We want to go out there and win.”

A reinvigorated Antonis has slotted seamlessly back into the Sky Blues squad, marking his return with a stunning goal in the last match Sydney FC played at Allianz Stadium.

He now has his sights set firmly on getting the Sky Blues into the semi-finals and beyond.

“I feel great being back for 3 games now,” Antonis said.

“I feel really good, my fitness is really good and injuries wise I don-t feel anything anymore.

“We want to make the semis and every game, at home especially, we want to win. This weekend is going to be a big game; it-s a derby, so everyone wants to win it.”
