Sydney FC head coach Frank Farina hopes star striker Alessandro Del Piero is fit for this weekend's derby clash with Western Sydney Wanderers.

The Italian great missed last week's 2-1 win at Wellington Phoenix with a hamstring injury but could be back when the Sky Blues host new boys the Wanderers at Allianz Stadium on Saturday.

"You'd like to be in a situation where there was no question about him playing, but there is still that little bit of doubt there," Farina said. "But we've still got 48 hours."
