Players have big ambition
WANDERERS TAKE ON VICTORY
WESTERN Sydney’s super sub Brendon Santalab said the best is yet to come from the Wanderers as they prepare to take on reigning champions Melbourne Victory this weekend.
Santalab provided a late goal to hand his side a dramatic 4-3 win over Melbourne City at Pirtek Stadium last Friday night, scoring the winning goal for the Wanderers for the second consecutive week.
Coach Tony Popovic’s decision to send Santalab on in the 80th-minute proved crucial, just after City scored two quick goals to immediately put themselves back in the contest.
“Santa” gave the red and black faithful plenty to cheer about when his 89thminute tap-in put the Wanderers up by two goals and secured the victory.
“It’s important we come off the bench and do well,” Santalab said.
“We play an important role in the team, the players who come off the bench, and keep focused throughout the whole game waiting for an opportunity and I was ready and I’m very happy I got that winning goal.
“We’re building, We’re improving week in, week out and I think the best thing about our situation is that we can still improve a lot.
“Within the group and the club, we know we have improvement left in us and we will continue to work during the week on things that weren’t so good tonight and just keep getting better.”
