Wanderers fans will return: Popovic

  • Wanderers fans will return: Popovic

Western Sydney Wanderers coach Tony Popovic believes the club's fans will return for their top-of-the-table clash against Melbourne Victory on Saturday night.

Popovic said while it was disappointing to see an empty North Terrace - usually populated the Red and Black Blok (RBB) - for their match against Brisbane he was confident Wednesday night's meeting between FFA and representatives of active supporters groups had resolved tensions.

"From my understanding the meeting last night went well," Popovic told Sky Sports Radio's Big Sports Breakfast.

"There was a positive outcome and we hope that, that equates to a full stadium on Saturday night for our game against the Victory."

Popovic once again threw his support behind the RBB, and highlighted the importance for the game to avoid similar similar situations in the future.

The FFA announced new measures on Wednesday night which included allowing banned fans to see evidence and then launch an appeal before an independent board if requested.

"Obviously there's some fine-tuning that needs to happen," FFA CEO David Gallop said.

"But I'm pleased to say that representatives of all 10 clubs' fan groups were there tonight and endorsed those changes."
