Wanderers swagger returns ahead of Phoenix clash

The swagger is back at Pirtek Stadium after three straight wins, with attacking midfielder Dario Vidosic declaring Western Sydney Wanderers fear no-one.

The Wanderers have defeated Perth Glory, Newcastle Jets and Melbourne City in their past three games - the latter two away from home.

Vidosic and Co. will join A-League leaders Melbourne Victory on 13 points with another triumph against Wellington Phoenix on Saturday.

Western Sydney's push to consecutive grand finals in 2013 and 2014, plus their AFC Champions League triumph, was built on an impressive home record.

Wanderers players celebrate a goal in their 3-0 win over Melbourne City.

Tony Popovic's side only won three league games at home last season and with a 50 per cent record at Pirtek Stadium from two matches this term, Vidosic reckons it's vital the Wanderers rebuild their fortress.

"That's the most important [thing], you know, at home because we have our fans, they're like a 12th man for us. 

"The atmosphere they create, how loud they are, it's that extra push," he said on Friday.

"It's almost like you've got that extra player - that old cliché I guess but it's very true here and we expect a full house tomorrow… we're coming out to win.

"That's our mentality, that's how we play football. We don't care who's in front of us. 

"If we play our football, there's not many teams that will stop us."

Phoenix have arrived in Sydney level with the Wanderers on 10 points and fresh from their 4-2 win against Adelaide United last week.

Vidosic reckons it will be a "stern test" but rates Western Sydney to compete at both ends of the pitch.

"We've been very solid at the back, which is the foundation for success, and now we're capitalising up front," the 28-year-old said.

"If you limit the [opposition] team to not many chances and to zero goals, it makes the job easier for us up front."
