Glory ready for league leaders

Perth Glory defender Scott Neville says the Western Australian side believes they can cause an upset when they take on league leader Brisbane on Friday night.

Perth Glory defender Scott Neville says the Western Australian side believes they can cause an upset when they take on league leader Brisbane on Friday night.

The Glory may be sitting in 10th on the Hyundai A-League table but after strong performances against top-four sides in the last month, including a 4-2 Christmas spanking of Adelaide, Neville believes it's high time to shake up Brisbane and end the Roar's run of 19 unbeaten games.

"We're confident going into any game, especially with the players that we've got in our team," said Neville from the Gold Coast, where the team have been training since their 0-0 draw with Gold Coast United on Monday night.

"The way we've been playing in the last couple of weeks (has been good) and Brisbane have to lose sometime."

"Hopefully for us it'll be this week."

"(But) Brisbane are an awesome side, probably one of the best in the A-League so far," Neville was quick to add.

"Their movement off the ball, that's what we've got to be wary of and also their quick one-two play which is unlike a lot of teams."

With Glory interim head coach Ian Ferguson finally able to pick a more consistent side as several players have returned from injuries and suspensions, Perth have lost just once from their last five games.

"It's going to be hard to make the finals from here," Neville admitted.

"But we're just going to take every game as it comes and hopefully win all our home games and pick as many points up as we can on away trips and see where that leaves us."

"Everyone still wants to do well," he added. "Fringe players and are looking for contracts,"

"We want to do well for the club and if we can sneak a finals' spot that's great but obviously we're just trying to pick up as many points as we can towards the end of the season and see where that leaves us."
