W-League: Two promoted for Sydney clash


The squad for this weekend’s match against Sydney FC is in, with an off-season signing in line for her first appearance in Jets colours.

After missing the first four rounds with a knee complaint, Annabel Martin is back in the frame for selection after making real progress in her battle with injury.

Renee Pountney was in the squad last weekend but didn’t make the trip to Perth, however she’s again a chance of seeing her first minutes of the season also.

Last weekend’s goalscorers will be keen to impress once again this weekend, with Nicki Flannery and Tara Andrews both likely to retain their place in the starting XI.
