Perth Glory are delighted to announce the signings of Steven McGarry and Daniel McBreen until the end of the season.

McBreen, a striker, joins the Glory from North Queensland in a switch that also saw James Downey leave Perth and head to the Fury.

Born in Burnley, England, McBreen has featured in 21 A-League games this season for the Fury and scored three goals playing alongside Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler.

McGarry, 30, has played in the Scottish Premier League with St Mirren and Motherwell, is a midfielder who can also play forward.

“I-ve been here for a week now and I-ve had a look and Dave-s (Mitchell) had a look at me and things have gone well.

“I-ve enjoyed the training and now I-m desperate to get involved in the three big games this week,” McGarry said.

Both players will be travel with the team this weekend for Saturday-s crucial clash against second placed Melbourne Victory followed by Adelaide on Tuesday.

“I-ve noticed the games are very tight with maybe the odd goal that wins the game, so hopefully I can bring the spark to make the difference.”

With six matches left before the finals, Glory defender Andy Todd acknowledges it-s crunch time for Perth with three games in six days.

“It-s an important week for us.

“It could make of break our season,” Todd said.

Perth-s tough schedule will be rounded out with a home game against Wellington on January 22, but Todd feels the players are primed for the challenge.

“I think the lads will handle it no problem at all.

But Todd stopped well short of saying Perth is assured of its first finals campaign in five seasons.

“There is no comfort zone. There is a long way to go.

“This week is a big week and by no means are we secured a place in the finals,” Todd said.

McGarry has been given number 14 and McBreen will wear number 2.

“I think at this stage of the season it-s important we-ve got two new fresh faces coming in.

“It gives us a little bit of lift to have two good players arrive at this stage of the season,” Todd said
