Green and Black looking to extend perfect record

Western United has made a dream start to life in the Liberty A-League, winning each of the five first matches in the Club’s inaugural season in the competition.

The Green and Black has secured big wins over finalists from last season in Melbourne Victory, Adelaide United and Melbourne City and will look to extend that record against Wellington on Saturday.

United has already played Wellington this season, securing a 4-1 win in New Zealand in Round 2 after a Hannah Keane brace.

Team News

Mark Torcaso will welcome Tyla Jay Vlajnic back into contention for this game after she missed last week’s win over Perth Glory due to a minor muscle issue.

The extended squad is unchanged from last week with United looking for consistency to build on the impressive start to the season.
