Head Coach Kenny Lowe declared himself pleased with the attitude and work rate shown by his Glory side during Tuesday night’s 3-0 friendly win over Perth SC at Dorrien Gardens.
Adam Taggart scored twice in the first half, with Andy Keogh adding the third just after the hour-mark as Glory shone on what was their final outing ahead of next week’s Westfield FFA Cup Round of 32 tie against Heidelberg United.
And Lowe felt that the visitors laid down a marker at the first whistle.
“There was a real focus on starting quickly and being aggressive and pressing and getting something out of the game physically,” he said.
“We achieved that even at the risk of sometimes over-exposing ourselves and looked bright, breezy and sharp throughout.
“We scored some good goals and could have had a lot more.
“Our NPL lads acquitted themselves well when they came on and I thought that after 60 minutes we actually stepped up a gear.”
Glory will return to the training track on Thursday to continue their preparations for the Heidelberg clash and Lowe feels that his charges are making solid progress.
“The primary focus last night was to get game time into everyone and not pick up any injuries and we did that,” he said.
“It’s still very early in the season, but we’re in a good place and hopefully we can go over there [to Heidelberg] and perform well.”
