The Sydney FC W-League team makes the trip across the Nullarbor Plains this afternoon ahead of Saturday-s clash with Perth Glory defending a three year undefeated record.
Not since 20 December 2008 have the W-League team been defeated in a match away from and Alen Stajcic-s girls travel to Perth intent on extending the record.
“It-s a record we are proud of and something we are intent on continuing this weekend against Perth,” Stajcic said. “To go undefeated in any form for three years shows consistent success, which is something that is a sign of a good Club.”
When asked about the secret to the success away from home, Stajcic declared the dedication and professionalism of his squad was central to the results.
“The girls have shown a lot of professionalism whenever we have travelled away from home to make sure we do all of the little things right,” he said. “As a club we go away with a plan to give ourselves the best possible chance of success and the girls are always professional in carrying out the plan. I also think it helps focus the team as we are away from home and can concentrate wholly on football.”
Sydney FC goes into the match in 3rd place on the Westfield W-League ladder with 14 points, caught in the middle of a logjam as four teams fight for three places in the finals series with Canberra United running away with the competition.
Canberra has 21 points, followed by Brisbane Roar (15 points), Sydney FC (14), Melbourne Victory (14) and Newcastle (12), setting up an exciting run into the final series.
