The Match

Western United is back in Ballarat for the third home match in a row and looking to pick up a massive win against Wellington Phoenix.

Despite a series of disappointing results, John Aloisi has been pleased with the performances and will be eager to see his players translate that into results on the pitch this weekend.

Past fixtures against Wellington have always brought high drama and fantastic football, with the Green and Black holding fond memories from previous outings.

United’s historic first ever match came in a 1-0 win against the Phoenix in 2019 and it was another 1-0 victory that kick-started the Green and Black’s magical run to the Championship in the 2022 Finals Series.

A stunning 3-2 comeback win had hearts racing last season, with all that building up to a massive contest at Mars Stadium on Saturday.

Lachie Wales is set to play his 150th match in the Isuzu UTE A-League Men and will be out to mark the occasion with another goal and a win against the Nix.
