Western United ALW Team News: Round 10 vs Canberra United

Chloe Logarzo Western United

Chloe Logarzo is set to play her 100th game in the Liberty A-League Women as Western United travels to face Canberra United on Saturday evening.

Logarzo is coming into this clash in rampant form, scoring the winner against Perth Glory last week for her third goal of the season, the most of any United player so far.

The No.6 has featured in eight successive matches and is getting sharper and more influential each week, driving the side forward into the second half of the season.

Western United’s co-captain will be eager for another top performance to celebrate the significant milestone in her career with a big three points.

This contest will also be a special occasion for Grace Maher, with the Western United vice-captain set to return home to face her former side after joining the Green and Black in the off-season.

Maher has been integral at the back for United, playing every minute of the season so far and shining in each performance with her leadership and quality both with and without the ball.

Having played in every single one of Western United’s matches so far, Hannah Keane will notch up appearance No.30 if she takes to the field in Canberra.

The American star netted a superb brace when Western United put five past Canberra in last year’s trip to the capital, and will no doubt be aiming for a similar performance.

Adriana Taranto is in the same boot having not missed a game for the Green and Black. The No.15 has been in excellent form this season in varying roles in midfield and on the wing and will be out to impact the game once again.

Kahli Johnson remains sidelined as she looks to recovery from a lower leg injury, and Catherine Zimmerman is continuing to step up her injury rehabilitation.
