Perth Glory Youth will look to make it four straight wins when they host second placed Melbourne City in the penultimate round of the Foxtel National Youth League at Dorrien Gardens on Sunday (10.30am)
Only three point’s separate the two sides on the ladder, so three points are a must to keep their final chances alive.
“We’ve performed consistently in recent weeks, and we will be demanding that we maintain those standards against a good Melbourne City side on Sunday,” said coach John Gibson
“The group is super competitive and look to be the best we can always - our goal will be to maintain and improve our performances.”
The Glory lost in the last meeting against City by the only goal, away from home in round 3, but defender Jack Iredale said they are on a good run of form and go into the game full of confidence.
“The win against Melbourne Victory was a very solid team performance, and it was great to keep a clean sheet away from home as well,” he said.
“We could've scored quite a few more goals to be honest, but we kept working through our processes and got rewarded.
Iredale has been outstanding in the run of good form, and the youngster who has come back from three long term knee injuries, said Sunday’s game is huge.
“The game against City this weekend is probably our biggest game yet in terms of what it means for the rest of the season,” he said.
“It's a must win for us and everyone at training knows that. We're on a good run of momentum right now so we will be looking to carry that into the game on Sunday and hopefully come away with the win.”
