New Western Sydney Wanderers goalkeeper Andrew Redmayne says he can't wait to play in his first ever Sydney Derby.
"Massive game really looking forward to it, obviously played in a few Melbourne Derbies but (I've) heard some great things about the Sydney Derby so expecting big things and an amazing atmosphere," Redmayne said.
"I think with the passion and the energy that the Wanderers' fans bring, I think it's going to be better than the Melbourne Derby, that's what I'm expecting.
"Derbies is [sic] what kind of football's all about, that passion, that rivalry and almost the bragging rights I guess.
"There's a lot more pressure, there's a lot more atmosphere, sold out crowds, everyone's on their feet...it's just fantastic and like I said I just can't wait to get out on Saturday."
The former Melbourne City man said that despite having a winless start to the season, there have been plenty of positives to take into this week's match.
"We're one draw from two games, but we've had a lot of positives, a lot of shots on target, a lot of entries into the box, so you know there's a lot of positives to draw on and hopefully we can convert that into a win this week," the 26-year-old said.
Redmayne also praised the professionalism of the club since moving across in the off-season.
"I thought I was professional before I came to this club and it just opened up my eyes and there's a whole new level of professionalism here, so it's been fantastic for me and I think it's really taken my game to the next step."
The Wanderers face Sydney FC this Saturday night at 7.30pm at Sydney Football Stadium.
