Season on the line vs City

This season has been one of ups and downs, of false dawns and bright rays of hope, with just 4 matches until the Semi-Finals, now is the time to fire or burn.

Wanderers have an amazing opportunity against City, should we prevail away we will be just one point behind this weeks adversary and will maintain our lead on Brisbane who will likely beat lowly Wellington.

Every point is gold from this time onwards, one slip can see us out of contention and with next weeks match vs a red hot Victory side who smashed the Mariners 5-2 and then Brisbane at home before Adelaide away there is no room for error.

In sixth place ourselves we are going to be playing the teams 3rd through to 7th obviously with the exceptions of ourselves over the next month, 3 out of the 4 away.

This is actually good news, if we have delusions of a home final then we must win these 6 pointers.

If we do qualify then we are assured of coming up against these teams in the short term and either Newcastle or a faltering Eastern side.

But those fixtures are a million miles from now, this Saturday we go to Melbourne to play City, 3 points are a must, with a little luck Newcastle will beat Adelaide and we could find ourselves 1 point off fourth spot.

There can be no excuses, if we are to win our allusive toilet seat, it will be on the road, now is the time to string a few games together.
