Season Defining Game For Sydney FC Women

Past allegiances will mean nothing to Sam Kerr when she faces up against former club Perth Glory in Saturday's A-League/W-League double header at Allianz Stadium.

Past allegiances will mean nothing to Sam Kerr when she faces up against former club Perth Glory in Saturday's A-League/W-League double header at Allianz Stadium.

Despite being born and raised in Western Australia, the young striker insists it will be fun to play against her old teammates, and prefers to focus on the result in the crucial top of the table clash.

"I played with them all growing up so actually coming up against them rather than playing with them will be a lot of fun," said Kerr.

"On the field it will probably be a bit different though and we'll get stuck in, but what happens on the field stays on the field."

Kerr made the switch to Sydney after missing the entire 2011 season with a knee injury picked up playing for the Matildas, and says she needed a change of scenery.

"I just needed a change. I'd been in Perth my whole life and thought it would be fun to come over here and play and meet some new friends and live in a new lifestyle."

"It was a big move but something I've wanted to do for a long time too."

The Glory hold top spot on a gridlocked W-League table, two points ahead of second-placed Sydney. A win would take the Sky Blues to the top of the ladder, while a loss could see them out of the top four, and Kerr admits there is plenty of pressure on the team to get the three points.

"I think there's a lot of pressure because if you lose you're fighting for that fourth spot," she said.

"It's exciting because us girls don't really get to play on a big ground like that normally.

"They've got their Matildas back and we have our Matildas back so I think it's going to be a lot more physical and hopefully it will go our way."

The W-League game kicks off at 5pm on Saturday at the Allianz Stadium immediately before the A-League match between Sydney FC and Western Sydney Wanderers, so get down earlier and support the girls.

Tickets for Saturday night's epic derby clash with Western Sydney Wanderers are still available from Ticketek starting from only $25 for adults. Kick off is 7:45pm with the W-League top of the table clash between Sydney FC and Perth Glory starting at 5pm.
