Western United broke a run of two straight losses last week with a 1-0 win over Brisbane Roar at AAMI Park.
Alessandro Diamanti found Dylan Pierias with an inch-perfect cross, who then headed home the winner.
Macarthur has lost their last two games, failing to score in either of them.
A 2-0 loss to the league-leading Central Coast Mariners was followed by a 3-0 drubbing to Melbourne City last week.
Western United defeated Macarthur 4-1 in their only ever meeting back in February.
Two goals from Besart Berisha helped United to a convincing win in Ballarat over the A-League new boys.
What Mark Rudan is saying
“Our job is to continue on and to make sure that we’re okay and in a good place.
“They have lost a couple on the trot and we’ve got our tails up and we’re playing some good football.
“You can see in this league it’s always up and down – there’s a lot of inconsistent results.
“We know that they’re looking for a reaction and we have to make sure that we don’t allow that reaction to happen.”
Stats of the week
- Alessandro Diamanti has created 10 big scoring chances in the 2020/21 A-League season, the most by any player in the campaign.
- Macarthur FC have the highest passing accuracy (85.5%) of any team this season.
