Westfield Matildas in action: Westfield W-League final round

The Westfield W-League will reach an exciting conclusion this weekend in the lead-up to the Finals Series.

With the Premiers’ Plate and spots in the top four still up for grabs, there’s plenty to play for right across the weekend.

Here’s where you can see some of the Westfield Matildas stars in action in Round 14.

Adelaide United v Melbourne Victory, Friday, 8pm @ Marden Sports Complex

The only match with no bearing on the make-up of the Finals Series.

While the Reds will finish with the wooden spoon, they would love nothing more than to finish with a win.

Trying to stop them will be Westfield Matildas and Victory defender Laura Alleway, who has been a standout for Jeff Hopkins’ side all season.

Newcastle Jets v Melbourne City, Saturday, 8.15pm, @ McDonald Jones Stadium

The Jets are coming off the back of a 5-1 thrashing of Canberra United last week, with Emily van Egmond stealing the show.

The Westfield Matildas midfielder scored a brace as the Jets secured a finals berth for just the second time in the club’s history.

But they are coming up a desperate Melbourne City who have international class right through their line-up.

That includes the likes of defensive duo Steph Catley and Alanna Kennedy – who boast an average passing accuracy of 81.3% – as well as Kyah Simon and Larissa Crummer up front, with a combined 45 shots and Lydia Williams in goal.

Emily van Egmond bagged a brace in Newcastle's big win over Canberra.

Sydney FC v Western Sydney Wanderers, Sunday, 4pm @ Seymour Shaw

What an exciting way to wrap up the Westfield W-League season, with a blockbuster Sydney derby.

The Wanderers will still be riding a high after dashing Perth Glory’s hopes of a finals appearance last week with a 4-3 victory.

But Sydney FC are still running rampant, eight-games unbeaten and still in with a shot of usurping Brisbane Roar to the Premiership.

And their Aussie stars have been at the top of their game, with the likes of Lisa De Vanna and Caitlin Foord at the point of the attack, while Chloe Logarzo is adding thrust from midfield.

Chloe Logarzo's goal proved to be the winner against Melbourne Victory.

Brisbane Roar v Canberra United, Sunday, 4.30pm, @ Suncorp Stadium

Roar only need a point to take out the Premiership and the experience of Mackenzie Arnold, Tameka Butt, Katrina Gorry, Clare Polkinghorne, Hayley Raso and Emily Gielnik means they will be confident of getting the job done.

Canberra United will need to be at their best if they are to pull off the upset to sneak into the finals.

Player of the Year Ellie Carpenter will hope to stop Roar’s attacking stars, while Ashleigh Sykes and Michelle Heyman will be out for goals at Suncorp.
