On the verge of a third-straight premiership, Sydney FC will shrug off a tight schedule and the A-League Women points-deduction saga as they attempt to wrap up more silverware.

The Sky Blues (37 points) and Western United (36) are the only teams left in the premiership race. They face Newcastle and Western Sydney respectively on Saturday.

Sydney's fate remains squarely on their own shoulders despite Football Australia confirming Brisbane Roar will not appeal against their points deduction for fielding an ineligible player against Western United on March 11.

Roar captain Ayesha Norrie had earned a one-match suspension after picking up her fourth yellow card of the season on March 4 against the Wellington Phoenix, but played the full game against United regardless.

Brisbane's 2-0 victory was stripped and replaced with a 3-0 loss, handing Western United three additional points.

Had the Roar successfully appealed, Western United would have been stripped of those points, allowing Sydney to claim the plate with a game to spare.

Instead, the Sky Blues have the chance to wrap up a first-ever third successive title themselves when they face the Jets.

"It's a super-privileged position to be in," defender Anna Green told reporters.

"We're in the driving seat. We know what we've got to do - go out there and get three points and we'll have the championship.

"It's a real privilege to be able to have our destiny in our own hands.

"We've been playing well all season - so just keep with that consistency

"If we play our game and play well it should work out for us."

Green is in her first season back at Sydney FC after previously playing there in 2013-14.

"I'm really excited to hopefully get my hands on the trophy," she said.

"Coming here, I really wanted to win silverware so to have the opportunity to do that is really exciting."

Sydney FC had previously received a three-point boost of their own when Canberra were punished for making an unauthorised substitution in their 2-1 win over the Sky Blues on February 11.

But unlike in Western United's case, the decision was later reversed on appeal.
