Victory Women primed for Roar test

Melbourne Victory Women has made two changes to the team that went down to Canberra United Women ahead of its crunch clash against Queensland Roar Women, which has been moved to Ballymore Stadium.

Melbourne Victory Women has made two changes to the team that went down to Canberra United Women ahead of its crunch clash against Queensland Roar Women, which has been moved to Ballymore Stadium.

The Round 5 fixture was moved from Spencer Park given Brisbane-s current weather conditions and will kick off at the same time of 5pm local (6pm AEDT) on Saturday.

Alisha Foote and Megan Archer return to the side which will do battle, with Laura Alleway and youngster Deanna Niceski making way for the pair.

Victory Women sit in third position on the Westfield W-League table and a win away from home will be just the tonic heading into the second half of the season.

Canberra Women bustled its way to victory against Victory Women last week at Bob Jane Stadium in an entertaining contest.

The 1-0 score line was a reflection of the match, with the visiting team making the most of its chances in front of goal.

Victory Women thought they had a chance to steal a point when the referee pointed to the spot late in the match, only to reverse the decision after consulting the linesman.

Roar Women are sitting on top of the Westfield W-League table and are coming off a confidence soaring 5-0 triumph over Central Coast Mariners Women.

Roar Women had five individual scorers last week, highlighting the attacking arsenal it has at its disposal.

”It is going to be a real tough test away from home,” Victory Women Coach Matt Shepherd said.

”They (Queensland) have been going quite well and will be pretty confident.

”We have a lot of improvement left in us and we hope to have learned a bit from last week-s loss to Canberra United.

“Along with Sydney FC, they were the most physical opponent we have faced.”

Victory Women-s next home match will be against Newcastle United Women at Epping Stadium, on Saturday, 6 December.
