With their first Asian Champions League game not going to plan last night, Western Sydney Wanderers will have to dust them selves off and prepare for this Sundayís A-League game against Newcastle Jets.
History has proven that Aussie clubs have struggled to manage the work load of A-League and Asian Champions League fixtures and WSW coach Tony Popovicís rotation system will be put to the test this Sunday.†
Obviously Western Sydney are still digesting last nights 3-1 defeat to Korean club Ulsan Hyundai, but can they bounce back in time? They showed early why they are so dangerous with a first minute goal to Brendon Santalab, thanks to some skill from Shinji Ono.
At this stage we can only speculate who will be in Tony Popovicís side for the clash against Newcastle, but with five former Jets in their squad, Iím sure they will all be up for the challenge to take on their old club mates.
Although it was their first ACL game last night, Western Sydney Wanderers would be hurting, especially losing in front of their home crowd and they will not want to make it two loses at Parramatta Stadium in a week.
So will Tony Popovic make many changes? Who do you think will back up for Sundays game and will any of the former Jets players get a start?
