Perth Glory will play Melbourne Heart at nib Stadium TONIGHT at 7pm.

Perth Glory will play Melbourne Heart at nib Stadium TONIGHT at 7pm.

After the two sides fought out a thrilling 2-all draw in week 4, the match has been highly anticipated for weeks.

Scott Neville has been declared fit for the Glory after coming off at half time against the Mariners with a corked thigh while the Heart will be minus former Qantas Socceroo striker John Aloisi and Brazilian Alex Terra. Both players are injured while Wayne Shroj is suspended.

Melbourne Heart coach John van't Schip admits he's been a little surprised by Perth's recent dip in form but feels the Glory have the depth in their squad to quickly climb back up the table.

“I am (surprised) because the quality is there. They showed that in the first few games in the season and that's not gone. It's only the team spirit goes down to a low level if you lose a few games behind each other,” he said.

“The best medicine is getting three points, we all know that, and they are in a bad moment. So we should be prepared and don't give them the chance to get back in that moment they had at the beginning of the season," vant Schip said.
