They showed that fighting spirit and their determination came to be a powerful weapon against Adelaide United, where they effectively ended the finals hopes of the Reds with 4-1 win. 

The Wanderers are yet to finish higher than sixth in a season but it is likely to be a process to get the side to their maiden W-League finals appearances.

As they say, "Rome wasn't built in a day".

Barrett has experience W-League finals having taken over the reins at Sydney FC in round 3 of the 2014 season and taking the Sky Blue's to the finals every season here was, including making the Grand Final in the 2015/16 season.

But looking to next season, Barrett just wants to win for a club that represents where he grew up.

"I want to win for the club," he said. 

"The club has been fantastic, they've supported myself, they've supported the girls and if there is a club I've ever wanted to bring success to its the people here.

"I understand it is a bit of a process, we'll get there and I want to make sure I'm the one that brings that to the club."
