Western United's return to Ballarat will come sooner than planned with the finals hopeful to make the trip up the highway next weekend.
United will host reigning premiers Sydney FC at Mars Stadium on Saturday, kicking off at 2:35pm.
It is the third game Ballarat will host this campaign and it shapes as a massive clash, without the hosts sitting two points outside a finals spot with five rounds remaining.
