Berisha eyes historic Ballarat clash


Western United star Besart Berisha has his eyes on tomorrow’s historic Hyundai A-League clash against Wellington Phoenix in Ballarat. 

After six home games in Geelong, United will head further west for the first-ever A-League game in Ballarat.

And Berisha is raring to go.

“We are really excited to come to Ballarat and hopefully it’s going to be a great game for us and something to celebrate for the Ballarat fans too,” Berisha told the Ballarat Courier on Thursday. 

“It’s great for the city I think… it’s really special because a lot of people are not working at this time so it’s a great atmosphere.

“Everybody is excited, we are doing well at the club and I think it’s the perfect timing to come to Ballarat and try to have a good game down there.”

Berisha has scored six A-League goals since returning to the A-League this season, including United’s first-ever in round 1 against the Phoenix.

And the A-League’s all-time leading scorer is hoping to find the net again in Ballarat.

“I’m definitely looking forward to Ballarat, to come down there, and hopefully I am able to score the goal there.

“I love celebrating in different places… I hope I can have this moment to celebrate at the Ballarat stadium and with the people down there.”


Western United’s next home game is against Wellington Phoenix at Mars Stadium, Ballarat on December 28. Kick-off is 5:00 pm.
