Glory aim for record in ultimate grudge match

The inaugural FFA Cup final may be done and dusted but Hyundai A-League leaders Perth Glory FC, still have a little score to settle.

Tomorrow, Glory host Adelaide United at nib Stadium in the last home game before the mid-season break and it will be an opportunity for Perth to inflict some revenge after its 1-0 Cup final loss to United in December.

Adelaide however hold the upper-hand against Glory. They beat the high flying Perth 2-nil, in round 3, at Coopers Stadium. But Glory defender Dino Djulbic said he was looking forward at playing the Reds, for the first time at home.

“It’s another big game for us. I’m looking forward to playing in front of a big home crowd, there’s nothing like your fans cheering you on” he said.

“I’m excited, the boys are excited and it’s really another must win game for us. We do that and we set ourselves up nicely for the mid-season break” he said.

A win tomorrow against United and Glory will again rewrite the record books. A victory would see Glory register its 9th consecutive home win since March 30. The team has already equalled Melbourne Victory’s record of eight consecutive home wins. A win would also see the boys from the West remain unbeaten in 11 matches and maintain their lead at the top of the table since round four.

Adelaide come to the match having only won two of its last six matches. More importantly the Reds have not won any their last six matches in Perth.

The game, originally scheduled for a 4.30 start, has since been revised to a new kick-off time of 5.30pm.

The match will be broadcast live on Fox Sports 504, ABC 720 and Sport FM.
