Four points separate Glory Women from a finals berth, and with just two rounds left, this Sunday’s match against Adelaide United at Ashfield Reserve is do or die.
Captain Kim Carroll knows that the chances of making the finals are slim, with the team needing other results to go their way, but is still holding out hope.
“We’ve kind of left it a bit late but I think we can still make it if we get the two wins out of the next two games,” she said.
“We’ve got a couple of key players out. Obviously Sam and Caitlin and their season ending injuries. We’ve got a tough game this week against Adelaide, and we’re going into it like any other game, going for the win.”
It has been a tough season for the Glory Women with injuries and results going against them, including in their first clash against Adelaide. In that match, Glory lead until the 76th minute when United scored directly from a corner kick on a wind assisted goal.
“We’ve had a couple of games that went against us that we should have won. We lost Sam and Caitlin up front, which is our strike force so that’s kind of hurt us a bit. So it hasn’t gone to plan I would say but we’ve still been a competitive team.”
They’ll be looking to stay competitive on Sunday against 4th place Adelaide, as last season’s head coach Jamie Harnwell returns to Perth to face his former club.
“For the majority of the girls that were here last year it’s obviously the previous coach and they don’t want to lose against him so it’s a big game for them. For me though, it’s just like any other game, and one we need to win,” said Carroll.
The match is set to kick-off at 4pm on Sunday at Ashfield Reserve.
