Perth’s Round 14 clash against Adelaide United saw the return of popular Irish import Andy Keogh to the Glory family which was embraced with a crowd of 9009-the biggest attended Glory match at nib Stadium so far this season.
While Glory lost the match 3-1 and Keogh didn’t score, the striker is aware of what his job is and isn’t shying away from what he needs to do.
“It’s obvious… I’m there to score goals and that’s what I want to give” he told reporters at training on Tuesday.
“I contributed a little bit (on Saturday night), I’ve got a lot more to give. That’s how it is when you’ve come in mid-season and you try to get that match fitness in straight away. I’ve been training hard and been putting a lot of effort off the pitch so hopefully my fitness will come back very quickly”.
Keogh acknowledged there were some changes to this year’s squad compared to last year but praised the acquisition of some players, especially Spanish marquee Diego Castro.
“I’m training and playing with the likes of Diego Castro a bit more and learning how he plays, that will help in the future games. The team is similar in style of play, if anything, it has more flare with Castro in it.
Glory squandered two clear-cut chances against United but its chances like those Keogh is confident of putting away.
“Hopefully some of those chances that fell to Diego and Chris Harold will fall to me and I’ll put them away. There’s 39 points on offer and you look for that top six and create something in a season where no one expected anything “.
Glory kicks-off its match against Melbourne City at 6.40pm on Saturday January 16.
