THE Western Sydney Wanderers get the chance to beat two Victorian teams in a row when they host Melbourne Victory this Saturday night in round six of the A-League.

The match at Parramatta Stadium will kick off at 7.45pm and another packed red-and-black stadium is expected.

The Wanderers returned from Melbourne last Friday night with three premiership points in the bag after their 1-0 win over the Heart.

A goal by Shannon Cole in the 27th minute was all Western Sydney needed to complete their mission in the southern capital.

The Wanderers were once again well-drilled and superbly disciplined.

They paraded their new signing, former Socceroo centre back Matthew Spiranovic.

It was Spiranovic’s A-League debut and while he didn’t dominate, the tall defender exuded class, which augurs well for the Wanderers and their 2013-14 aspirations.

The win, the third in a row for Western Sydney, puts them second on the A-League ladder after five rounds with 11 points, just one behind competition leaders Brisbane Roar.

Third, on eight points, is the team the Wanderers will aim to make their next scalp this Saturday night: Melbourne Victory.
