Both of these teams have struggled for consistency in recent weeks so that makes this game somewhat unpredictable. The Wanderers are missing several first team regulars so team news tips this in favour of the hosts who impressed last time out and just about edge this one.

The last time Western Sydney Wanderers won in Brisbane was back in March 2015. This fixture would see the Sydney based outfit pick up a comprehensive 4-1 win at Suncorp Stadium. Kerem Bulut would earn the plaudits as his braced play a huge part in the Wanderers earning all three points.
