Wanderers sniff glory

Wanderers sniff glory

Western Sydney Wanderers are on the verge of playing in their second grand final.

To do so they must beat the team that defeated them in last year's decider, the Central Coast Mariners, who downed Adelaide United 1-0 on the weekend.

The grand final qualifier between the Wanderers and Mariners will be played at Parramatta's Pirtek Stadium this Saturday.

The winner will play whoever wins the second grand final qualifier between Brisbane Roar and Melbourne Victory.

If Roar win, the grand final the following week will be played in Brisbane. But if they lose and the Wanderers win, it will be played at either Pirtek Stadium or ANZ Stadium.

Challenge for Giants

Greater Western Sydney Giants (pictured) are searching for winning form after their third consecutive loss in this year's AFL competition.

In round six, the Giants next play Gold Coast Suns at Metricon Stadium at Carrara on Saturday.

Giants coach Leon Cameron is looking to recapture the side's opening two rounds' winning form in the next few weeks.

The Giants lost 21.11 (137) to 10.12 (72) to Adelaide Crows at Adelaide Oval on Sunday.

Giants co-captain Callan Ward was concussed and replaced during the game.

The Giants have slipped to 14th and have eight premiership points.

"We've got 19 players under 50 games, our average games is about 30 and to have one of your 100-game players go down half-way through the second quarter was disappointing," Cameron said.
