Canberra are second in the league after a drought-breaking first round win against reigning Grand Finalists Perth Glory last week.

Price starred in that match up, although she now has some heavy firepower surrounding her in a reinvigorated United lineup.

“It’s always exciting when you know your coming up against world class players,” Price told Canberra's website.

“They’ve obviously got some great players in the midfield like Emily van Egmond and Steph Catley and they present a strong challenge.

“But at the same time, when I’m out on the field, I just focus on my job and what I can do to help my team.”

Their impressive opener has got Price thinking that while City may still be the loftier of the two, Canberra are the dark horses no team wants to face.

“There’s always areas you can improve on, but I think we played well and started out strong,” Price said.

 “Winning our first game definitely bought our confidence up and we all believe in each other and believe that we can beat any team.”

Once again, Canberra will be fundraising for the Salvation Army bushfire appeal at Sunday's match.
