A first-half double to Labinot Haliti gave Western Sydney Wanderers a 2-0 victory over Blacktown City in front of 3472 fans at Lily Homes Stadium on Wednesday night.
Wanderers coach Tony Popovic rotated his squad throughout the match with a mix of confirmed signings and triallists getting match time.
The opening goal came through the left boot of forward Haliti in the 10th minute.
The 27-year-old received the ball 25m out from goal and delivered a crisp finish that gave Blacktown goalkeeper Brody Crane little chance.Haliti netted his second goal seven minutes out from halftime.
“As a goalkeeper that is obviously the goal (to have a clean sheet) and both Jerrad (Tyson) and myself are working hard to main that record,” Wanderers goalkeeper Ante Covic said.
“Keeping the opposition to zero is definitely a testament to the guys out on the pitch as well, they are working hard all over the park.
“Poppa (Popovic) is building things nicely and as we continue to work on our combinations we are hopeful that come round one we’ll be in a good position to get a victory.”
Football Federation Australia (FFA) chief David Gallop said it would not be a "disaster" if the Socceroos do not qualify for the FIFA 2014 World Cup.
