THE Western Sydney Wanderers will play their second consecutive A-League grand final on Sunday in Brisbane against minor premiers the Roar.

But the pride and joy of Sydney's west won't lack support because thousands of fans are expected to trek to Queensland to help their team win its maiden championship.

The Wanderers advanced to their second consecutive grand final after comfortably beating the Central Coast Mariners 2-0 on Saturday night at Pirtek Stadium before 20,000 fans.

The only sour note from their historic victory on Saturday was an ankle injury to forward Mark Bridges. He'll probably be out of Sunday's decider but the team can be confident they have Brisbane's measure.
