Western Sydney Wanderers will hand a late fitness test to Jack Rodwell before boss Mark Rudan names his side to face Macarthur FC on Saturday afternoon.
Western Sydney are priced at 4/1 to finish in the top six of the A-League and they could do with getting the former England international Rodwell back in the side as soon as possible.
Rodwell has been out of the side with a hamstring injury but is back to fitness and Rudan now just has to decide whether the time is right to bring him back in.
It is a derby game after all and Rudan is even more determined to put on a show in the clash at Campbelltown Stadium.
The derby may be in its infancy and not as big as the rivalry with Sydney FC but Rudan is still keen for his side to have the right attitude and put on a show.
"We need to go out there and perform and behave and have the attitude like it is a big derby game," Rudan told reporters. "That's what I expect from them."
Wanderers academy product Tate Russell is also fired up for the game and says the local rivalry means there will be added spice.
"They're just down the road from us so that's the one we want to win as well now, as you could say a second derby," Russell said. "I've been at the Wanderers for years now so this is where my heart lies so to win this game for us is more important to me."
Wanderers go into the game having won three of their seven games under Rudan to leave them in 10th place on the ladder.
They remain six points away from the top six with 12 games left to play and could do with all three points against the Bulls.
