SWAN Districts is back at Steel Blue Oval on Saturday afternoon this time for Round 4 of the WAFL Women's competition searching for its second win of the season against Peel Thunder.

The Round 4 matches in the 2019 Optus WAFLW Premiership Season will both take place on Saturday this week with Claremont playing Subiaco on Saturday morning, and then Swan Districts taking on Peel Thunder in the afternoon.

The game will begin at 12.15pm and will lead directly into the WAFL league fixture at Steel Blue Oval between Swan Districts and the West Coast Eagles.

The game between Swans and the Thunder will be streamed live via the WAFL website and Facebook page for those not in attendance at Bassendean.

Swan Districts and Peel both come into Saturday's clash at Steel Blue Oval following defeats with Swans looking for their first win of the season and the Thunder still searching for their first.

Swans opened the inaugural season in WAFLW with a loss at home to Subiaco by 29 points before responding the following Sunday also on home soil at Bassendean with an impressive 36-point victory.

But last Sunday, Swans managed just the one goal and two scoring shots the entire afternoon to lose to East Fremantle by 61 points at East Fremantle's New Choice Homes Park.

That saw the Black Ducks slip to a 1-2 record on the season entering Saturday's clash with Peel.

The Thunder started the season with a 37-point loss on the road to East Fremantle in Round 1 before having the bye in Round 2 and then returning to action last Sunday and putting in a competitive showing, but ultimately losing to Claremont by three points at Claremont Oval.

So with both teams desperate for a win and a good crowd expected in the lead up to the WAFL contest between Swan Districts and the West Coast Eagles, Swans and the Thunder will be throwing everything at one another come Saturday afternoon.
