Wanderers team news and form: Bleak attack adds up to a horrible season

Yes, we are still too early in the campaign to make a general assessment for HFX Wanderers, but the truth is coach Gheisar’s boys just cant score. They bagged only six in the 2024 Canadian Premier League campaign, and that’s not something you want when you are about to face the best backline in the league.

Predicted lineup: Fillion (GK), Timoteo, Dunn, Nimick, Fernandez, Rampersad, Callegari, Ferrin, Probo, Ferrazzo & Telfer

Player to watch: Emil Gazdov

As we stated previously in our Wanderers vs Pacific predictions, coach James Merriman’s team is performing admirably when it comes to keeping the ball away from their net. The culprit to blame? Emil Gazdov and his tremendous goalkeeping!

Gazdov cemented his starting position

Emil Gazdov is now a firm starter under coach Merriman’s rule. The up-and-coming shot-stopper only conceded three goals this season, and we are convinced he’d like to record another clean sheet on the 8th of June.
