Get your cowbells ready Bulls fans - the A-League's updated fixture wills see Macarthur FC take on both Sydney rivals at home in the span of one week.

The local team will face Sydney FC for the first time at Campbelltown Stadium on Saturday, January 30, and then back up against the Western Sydney Wanderers a week later, on February 6.

Both games are scheduled to kick off at 7.10pm.

The Bulls have had a strong start to their inaugural A-League season.

After the pandemic pushed back the start of the season, the Bulls opened their top flight account with a win against cross-town rivals the Wanderers in the first Battle of the West.

Macarthur emerged 1-0 victors at Parramatta's Bankwest Stadium, and will be looking to continue that winning form in the rematch on February 6.

The club's first Campbelltown home game did not see the Bulls walk away with the desired result - going down 2-0 to the Central Coast Mariners - however their second home game against Wellington Phoenix saw an improvement, ending in a 1-1 draw.

Coach Ante Milicic will no doubt be calling on the boys to pull together a debut win against the Sky Blues next week.

The Bulls have momentum in their favour, coming off a fourth round 2-1 win against the Newcastle Jets at McDonald Jones Stadium last Sunday. The match saw three Macarthur players yellow carded, including captain Mark Milligan.

Import Loic Puyo opened the scoring in the eighth minute, followed by Matt Derbyshire in the 23rd.

The Sydney FC match on Saturday will be broadcast on Fox Sports.

Tickets to the game are available now from Ticketek, starting at $28. Limited seating is available due to Covid-19 regulations.
