Preview: Roar Women v Adelaide United


Our Roar Women will be looking to build momentum ahead of another Westfield W-League finals campaign in their final regular season fixture on Friday night.

Our Women face Adelaide United at Marden Sports Complex (6:30pm KO) where a win would secure a home semi-final and keep the hopes of a second consecutive Premiership alive.

Spirts are high within the group following an impressive display in a 4-1 win over Canberra United last week. Four different scorers found the back of the net including Allira Toby, who’s recent goal-scoring form will have the Reds defence on guard.

“For me, I think the season has been the best one yet. I’ve been consistent and playing 90 minutes week in, week out at the moment,” Toby said.


“I’m happy to be giving goals and scoring for the team — I can’t score without them so I’m just glad to be doing my part.

“We want to go back-to-back, we want to go out there this weekend and take the three points and have a positive performance going into the finals.”

Last week’s win guaranteed a top-four finish for Mel Andreatta’s side who can’t wait for the thrills of sudden-death football.

“We love finals footy and we’re all very excited to finally be going in to the business end of the season,” Toby continued.

“We want to work hard for each other and we don’t want to let anyone down so we’re still going to go out there and fight hard for each other. “


The Reds took all three points in the only previous meeting this season, but Adelaide has been a happy hunting ground for the Roar. In six previous trips, the Roar Women have taken all three points on five occasions.
