The A-League is back in action this weekend as Western Sydney Wanderers take on Macarthur FC in an important clash at the Campbelltown Sports Stadium on Saturday. Both teams have been impressive at times this season and will want to win this game.

Macarthur FC's first A-League campaign got off to an excellent start but the Bulls have been given a reality check in recent weeks. The home side is in sixth place in the A-League standings and has a point to prove this weekend.

Western Sydney Wanderers, on the other hand, find themselves in third place in the league table after an impressive start to the season. The Sydney outfit played out a 1-1 draw with Newcastle Jets in its previous match and will want to return to winning ways on Saturday.
