It’s a tight affair on the Hyundai A-League ladder with only six points separating 4th (Victory – 23 points) to 9th (Wellington – 17 points). Perth Glory can jump from seventh place to fourth with a win against the Victory tonight but the team needs your support!
It-s a tight affair on the Hyundai A-League ladder with only six points separating 4th (Victory - 23 points) to 9th(Wellington - 17 points). Perth Glory can jump from seventh place to fourth with a win against the Victory tonight but the team needs your support!
Gates open at 5.30pm for an ideal 6.45pm kick-off.
Victory has suffered two 5-0 thrashings in a row so expect Kevin Muscat-s men to come out firing against the Glory. Interim Head Coach Kenny Lowe has labelled the Victory a ‘wounded animal- and is preparing the Glory for a tough match.
William Gallas is aiming to play his first 90 minutes of the season, while Josh Risdon and Shane Smeltz are aiming to play their second-successive full matches after getting through last week-s match against the Wanderers unscathed.
New Serbian signing, Nebojsa Marinkovic, made an eye-catching debut off the bench and is primed for a starting birth against the Victory. The 27-year-old is a dead ball specialist so look for him to get on the free kicks and corners at every opportunity.
This match really is a ‘six pointer- and all the stats indicate it-s going to be a closely-fought contest. The Glory has not conceded an A-League goal at nib Stadium in their last 270 minutes of football, but they have never kept a clean sheet at home to Melbourne Victory in the history of the Hyundai A-League.
