Bridge: Wanderers fans will have Penrith red, black and rocking in FFA Cup derby

Mark Bridge has warned Sydney FC to expect a deafening atmosphere when Western Sydney Wanderers take Saturday's blockbuster FFA Cup Semi Final to Panthers Stadium.

The two rivals are set to meet in the competition for the first time as they battle for a place in the decider.

Penrith has never previously played host to a Sydney Derby and Blacktown-born Bridge expects the Sky Blues to quickly discover who has home support.

"It's a great place for football," Bridge said of the 22,500-seater stadium.

"Having this full on the weekend is going to be loud, it's going to be full of red and black, it's going to be amazing.

"It's big for our club, getting to the Semi Final two years in a row.

"To play Sydney FC makes it even bigger and we're looking to play here on Saturday in front of a full house.

"The people out here deserve it, we've got a lot of fans out here, so hopefully we can give them a good result and get through to the Final."

Western Sydney impressed in the 2-1 away win over Melbourne City that sealed their spot in the Semi Finals for the second successive season.

With fresh silverware in sight, Bridge believes the former AFC Champions League winners are primed to topple FFA Cup holders Sydney FC.

"We're confident. We feel good. We're a young club but we're a successful club," he said.

"We've achieved a lot in our short amount of time but this is the thing that's got away from us.

"We'll be looking to add it to our cabinet this time around."

Saturday's match kicks off at 7:30pm AEST.
