Wanderers frontline finally fires

-

It may have taken nine weeks, the starting debut of a 19-year-old striker and another omission of Kerem Bulut, but Western Sydney Wanders finally found some confidence in the final third last Saturday.

Doubling the previous maximum goals they had scored in a game this season, the Wanderers found the back of the net with ease in a 4-1 demolition of Central Coast Mariners.

Pulling the trigger more than in any other game this season, with 22 shots to their name, the red and black seemingly discovered some much needed vigour in front of goal.

While their two fresh foreigners in Kusukami Jumpei and Nicolas Martinez have been breathing new life into the Western Sydney midfield all season, the side has struggled to make the most of it.

The fact in exemplified perfectly by the once again omitted striker Kerem Bulut, who has managed just two shots on target in his six goalless appearances so far season.

Meanwhile the heart of midfield, in the ever industrious Mitch Nichols, had also been missing a beat with the number six still searching for his first goal of the season after he bagged ten times last term.

Against the Mariners, however, things started to flow up front for the Wanderers with Nichols for one showing a swagger in the final third that had eluded him.

Unleashing twice the number of shots he has had all season, grabbing an assist and generally linking up superbly with Martinez the way he did with Mark Bridge last year; Nichols looked a reinvigorated player.

With the red and black heart again pumping, the wingmen in Jumpei and Martinez were allowed to take full flight with both grabbing fine goals and the latter an assist too in a man of the match performance.

The starting striker Lachlan Scott was relatively quiet and aside from a few neat touches didn’t set the world alight, but did create what was acres of space for the rest of his side moving forward.

Super sub Brendon Santalab was his usual lethal self off the bench, somehow adding to the Wanderers’ goal tally despite the side being reduced to ten men.

With Melbourne Victory awaiting them in their next game, in a blockbuster at ANZ Stadium, the red and black really need to keep their attack firing as they look to give fans a long awaited first home win of the season.
