This fixture brings together the A-League’s last two win-less teams. The Wanderers will back up for their second home game in three days after a 0-0 draw with the Mariners on Wednesday night. Including playoffs, the reigning Asian club champions are unbeaten in their past five games at ‘‘Wanderland’’, conceding just one goal in that stretch. The Jets have won two of their past three at Parramatta, but are yet to keep a clean sheet this season. Former Jet Mark Bridge has scored four goals in six games against his old club.
