The Sydney FC W-League team takes on Brisbane Roar on Saturday afternoon at the Brisbane Sports and Athletics Centre in a winner take all shoot out for a place in the top two on the Westfield W-League competition ladder.

Brisbane Roar (2nd) and Sydney FC (3rd) go into the final regular season match separated by just one point with the winner guaranteed to finish 2nd and have a home semi final the following week.

Second place is a huge advantage in the W-League with the semi finals played as one-off matches, giving added advantage to the “home team”.

The Sydney FC v Brisbane Roar showdown continues a long list of big clashes between the two most successful teams in W-League history.

Sydney FC has been boosted by the return of prolific Westfield Matilda-s striker Kyah Simon, who scored a double in her starting debut for the season last weekend.

Sydney FC goes into the match full of confidence after defeating Perth Glory 3-0 in Perth last weekend, stretching its undefeated record in away matches to more than a year.

The Sydney FC squad, to be trimmed before the side departs for Brisbane, is: 1. LIPSHER, Allison; 15. SLATYER, Thea; 3. (C) BROGAN, Danielle; 4. ROLLASON, Renee; 5. JOHNSON, Estelle; 6. UZUNLAR, Servet ; 10. LEDBROOK, Kylie; 2. POLIAS, Teresa; 9. WALSH, Sarah; 12. ALLEN, Teigen, 8. FOORD, Caitlin; 13. WHITTFIELD, Britt; 7. GARRIOCK, Heather; 19. KHAMIS, Leena; 16. BASS, Alisha; 17. SIMON, Kyah ; 30. KHAMIS, Sham ; 14. SOUTAR, Rachael; 21. LOGARZO, Chloe
