    FULL-TIME:

    This was an absorbing derby the Wanderers ultimately deserved to win. They dominated the first half but were outplayed for large periods of the second stanza, yet the unrelenting determination and attacking smarts of everyone's favourite Ethiopian-Dutchman, and my man of the match, Youssuf Hersi propelled them to victory. His was a stellar performance. And super sub Brendan Santalab will be absolutely stoked he scored the winner against his old club. Sydney FC, meanwhile, can feel a little disappointed their second half showing didn't yield at least a point. They controlled the midfield up until the last 10 minutes, with Gameiro and Despotovic going close with dangerous shots. However, I think Frank Farina can take some real positives from this match - SFC maintained formation and looked solid most of the night - but it was Poppa's evening, and the men in red and black are now only four points behind the Roar. Thanks for tuning in. 

    SWS 1 SFC 0 

    82nd minute:

    The Wanderers have found a second wind. Their fans are back in voice and they're speeding around the pitch like that last 10 minutes was just a dream. And here's the crowd figure: 18,080, the Wanderers' biggest attendance of the season.

    SFS 0 WSW 0

     

     

    78th minute:

    Crikey, that was a sloppy foul from Abbas on Hersi down in the lefthand corner - and he's copped a yellow for his efforts. And here's a shock: 18-year-old Dylan Caton on for ADP who shoots a death stare towards the coaching staff. 

    WSW 0 SFC 0

     

    70th minute:

    The Wanderers' fans are expressing their frustration. Their normally hypnotic singing has quietened right down. The men in red and black are also committing a lot of fouls. But as I write that, Bridge finds space in the area, only for Warren to block his shot. Maybe that will turn things around...

    WSW 0 SFC 0

    66th minute:

    Naumoff on for Thompson, who has worked his arse off tonight. Fresh legs could be just what SFC needs. Yellow for D'Appuzo. He almost took Warren's head off with a high challenge. Sydney are getting everyone back behind the ball, which is frustrating the Wanderers, and when they get possession their attack is looking more potent.

    WSW 0 SFC 0

     

    63rd minute:

    Lucy, sister of Ned, Zelic is right: Sydney FC are looking good. Despotovic just ran onto an ADP through ball and went hard at goal only for Spiranovic to force him to shoot wide. Brave defending, bloke.

    WSW 0 SFC 0

     

    59th minute:

    Popovic makes his move: Brendan Santalab on for Tomi Juric. Juric hit the woodwork twice in the first dig but obviously Poppa thought he should have done better.

    WSW 0 SFC 0

    54th minute:

    Alessi has been very solid in his debut for the Wanderers. Hasn't looked flustered at all. One for the future. And that's a screamer of a shot from McFlynn which Covic pushes around the post. It was the culmination of a couple of minutes of good play by the sky blues, coinciding with Gameiro's introduction, I'd suggest.

    SWS 0 SFC 0

    50th minute:

    Farina makes his first change: Cameiro on for Emerton. That was straight after Ono went close with an outstretched leg that couldn't quite latch onto a speeding through ball from La Rocca. 

    WSW 0 SFC 0

    48th minute:

    I know I've said it before, but Hersi is really killing it tonight. He may have a really terrible haircut, but his dribbling and through balls are all class and style. 

    WSW 0 SFC 0

    That's halftime folks - a hard-fought encounter as you'd expect, with the Wanderers dominating towards the end. Youssuf Hersi is on fire and Tomi Juric has been electric up front, while Shinji Ono is providing that oh-so valuable link through midfield. For the sky blues, Nikol Petkovic has been superb, a real warrior's performance from the back. ADP has provided a couple of deft touches but the Wanderers have struck the wooodwork four times, so the law of averages suggests they will score at some point. That said, Sydney FC have shown a great capacity to scrape and guts it out this season, so Frank Farina will be hoping his men can hang on for a draw. Time for a beverage. Back in five. 

    WSW 0 SFC 0

    42nd minute:

    Amazing stuff! Hersi cracked a piledriver from 30m into the woodwork that had Janjetovic cutching at thin air. From the rebound Juric smacked the ball into the crossbar. Unbelievable. That's the fourth time the Wanderers have found wood.

    WSW 0 SFC 0

    38th minute

    Once again Petkovic creates havoc down the left flank, hitting a nice low cross that is deflected by a random boot. He's having a pearler tonight.

    WSW 0

    33rd minute:

    WSW 0

    SFC 0

    You can't fault Hersi's determination tonight. He's been fouled four times already, but he still had the nous to smash a ball from the back through to Juric, who released Bridge out to the right. Bridges' shot clipped the righthand post. Ooh, that was close.

    29th min

    WSW 0

    SFC 0

    Matt Jurman bags the game's first yellow for a nasty challenge on LaRocca who gets up very gingerly. From the subsequent freekick the ball was threaded through to Juric in space but the linesman's flag was up.

    25th minute:

    Eek! That wasn't a pretty foul: Abbas brought down Hersi 30m out but the man in sky blue escaped without a yellow. The dangerous, swirling freekick was punched away by Janjetovic.

    WSW 0 SFC 0

    20th minute:

    Loving Petkovic's game tonight. Commanding stuff from the back - buccaneering runs down the left side and excellent balls through midfield. Youssuf Hersi just fired in a neat cross that found mark Bridge unmarked but he couldn't bring the ball down in time and his shot was easily blocked. A good sign for Hersi, who has been well marked by Warren.

    WSW 0 SFC 0 

     

    16th minute:

    Shinji Ono has been quiet so far. There's been a lot of transfer speculation about him in the last couple of weeks. Maybe it's having an effect. I forgot to mention the Cove are well represented tonight. They've eked out a noisy blue enclave to the right of Janjetovic's goal. 

    WSW 0 SFC 0

    7th minute

    First chance. Tomi Juric fired a cannonball from 25m that smashed into the lefthand post off Janjetovic's outstretched hand. Close.

    WSW 0 SFC 0

    3rd minute

    WSW 0

    SFC 0

    First foul committed by Marc Warren on Hersi. It will be a massive battle between these two tonight. Tim Cahill is in the crowd tonight. G'day Tim. Sydney FC have already made two  inroads down the Wanderers right flank. Matt Thompson looks in good form.

    Sixteen year old Daniel Alessi is making his debut for the Wanderers. Let's hope it's a good night for the youngster.

    After a week of bad publicity about crowd violence, it's great to finally focus on football and one of the A-League's biggest and bitterest derbies: Western Sydney Wanderers vs Sydney FC. The self-proclaimed people's team, the Wanderers, are almost unbackable favourites, despite having lost their last game to the Phoenix, while self-proclaimed glamour club Sydney, are coming off a 2-2 draw with Adelaide. But don't be deceived - for all the Wanderers' grit and class, they are only four points ahead of seventh-placed Sydney, and their ability to score regularly is still a problem for coach Popovic. Yet in Tomi Juric, they have one of the league's most exciting finishers, and with Shinji Ono in form, they should be a handful for the light blues' defence. Meanwhile, it's been a fitful season for Frank Farina's men so far, but a win tonight would be a massive boost to their semi final ambitions. Alessandro Del Piero has looked a little jaded of late but he is in the starting line-up tonight, and if he can hook up well with Ranko Despotovic, who has been sharp in front of goal, the Sydney boys might just be capable of pulling off an upset. Looking forward to the clash between Despotovic and Spiranovic in the Wanderers defence. They were teammates in the J-League and are best of buddies. It's a full-house at Pirtek Stadium and already the Red and Black Bloc are in fine voice. Temperature is a warm 25 degrees and the pitch looks in good nic. Can't wait for kick-off. Should be a corker!
