All the information you need to know ahead of Perth Glory's must-win game against the Melbourne Heart at nib Stadium. Gates open at 5.30pm for a 6.45pm kick-off.
Perth Glory takes on Melbourne Heart tonight at nib Stadium in a must-win game. Gates open at 5.30pm for a 6.45pm kick-off.
Kenny Lowe had his first win as Perth Glory interim head coach, with a gutsy 1-0 victory away to the Newcastle Jets last week. The club is hoping all Glory fans come out this Friday to support Kenny and the team as they attempt to win back-to-back games and drive their way back to the top half of the ladder for a finals position.
There's further good reason to back the boys from the west with the A-League-s all-time top goal scorer, Shane Smeltz, expected to make his 50th Hyundai A-League appearance for Glory. Captain Jacob Burns is also set to return to the side after a one week suspension. Burns- leadership will be crucial to the Glory as they seek to continue Heart-s poor away record.
