    Western Sydney boss John Tsatsimas says the club will use Tim Cahills A-League debut in Sydney as a litmus test for their temporary home ground at Spotless Stadium. Kenny Stills Jersey .The Wanderers have sold around 21,000 tickets for Fridays blockbuster against Melbourne City, 3000 short of the capacity at the boutique venue in Homebush.Citys home games have attracted a modest average of less than 9000 over its first three home games of the season, however Tsatsimas is expecting a near sellout at Spotless.With our strong and passionate member base and a big name opponent in Melbourne City, indications are for a very healthy turnout for this match, Tsatsimas told AAP.While there are not many away fans purchasing, the fact that Tim Cahill will be playing his first A-League match in NSW in Western Sydney will no doubt pique the interest of more than a few.As the Wanderers wait for its new stadium to be built in Parramatta by 2019, the club is expected to take a minimum of four games to the bigger ANZ Stadium each season.And although it appeared likely Cahills first appearance in Sydney since joining the A-League was going to be one of them, Tsatsimas is eager to look at how Spotless handles a main event.It will be just their third game of the campaign at the venue.We have been putting in a lot of work to make our member experience at Spotless Stadium improve week-on-week and this will continue on Friday night for the City match, he said.Having a big fixture like this at Spotless Stadium gives us the chance to test our atmosphere, refine our match day experience and allow our members the chance to get used to the venue and tweak their traditions with regards to getting to the game.Cahills only match outside of Melbourne in his four appearances for City was in Brisbane a fortnight ago, where he was booed by the Roar faithful.Tsatsimas, who declined to comment on the clubs interest in Cahill prior to the Socceroo joining City, expected a raucous reception for the Sydney product.He is an icon of the game and has served our country well at international level so our fans respect his standing, he said.But he is also coming here as a player from the opposition so I am sure our fans will get behind our team and give our boys the high level support they provide week in, week out. Chandler Cox Jersey .
