Adelaide United

W-League Preview: Round Seven features Dash trio in Thursday duel

Amber Brooks, Veronica Latsko and Adelaide United look to remain unbeaten as they travel to Sydney to face Sofia Huerta and Sydney FC on Thursday. Latsko scored her first W-League brace last week as she salvaged a point for Adelaide with a late second half goal against Perth Glory FC. Latsko has now scored four goals in her debut W-League season, the last two assisted by her Dash teammate Brooks who also anchors Adelaide’s back line. The center back has won 72 percent of her duels and has a 77.8 percent tackle success rate.  

Huerta and Sydney FC snapped a three-game losing streak last Saturday and look to build on their 5-1 victory over Brisbane Roar at home.  Huerta tallied an assist after the right back dribbled to the end line and found Princess Ibini at the near post. A victory for Sydney FC would propel them into the top four spots of the W-League ladder and level with Adelaide.  

Clare Polkinghorne and Brisbane look to bounce back on Saturday as they host the first place Melbourne Victory. A victory would place Brisbane within three points of the league leaders who had a bye week during Round Six.  

Kyah Simon and Melbourne City FC return to action in Round Eight as they host Canberra United at AAMI Park.
