Kennedy v Kerr in crucial Westfield W-League clash

A repeat of last year’s Westfield W-League Grand Final is the most mouth-watering match-up in round 10 of this season’s competition.

Both sides are locked on 13 points, knowing a win would lift them into the top four, while also giving them breathing space with just four rounds to go before the Finals Series.

And the key battle within Sunday’s game at City’s Football Academy ground is undoubtedly the clash between Westfield Matildas team-mates Sam Kerr and Alanna Kennedy.

The Glory star scored after just three minutes when the sides last met in round one with Perth emerging big 4-1 winners. 

Kerr's form has been nothing short of spectacular in the last 12 months and her hat-trick against Newcastle a fortnight ago sent her to the top of the league’s goal-scoring charts.

But Kennedy has also been outstanding in the heart of Melbourne City’s defence, helping the defending Champions to a crucial 1-0 win against Wanderers last weekend. 

The 22-year-old has played all eight games this season for City, playing every minute for Patrick Kisnorbo's side alongside American Lauren Barnes. 

And the duo will have their hands full with Kerr in the form of her life. 

A fascinating contest looms with a spot in the top four up for grabs.
