A round-up of all the latest news coming out of Glory HQ
Good to be back
Kenny Lowe’s side make a welcome return to nib Stadium on Saturday evening having spent much of the opening third of the season on the road.
And they’ll be out to maintain an impressive home record against Newcastle Jets who have lost on 11 of their last 12 visits to nib Stadium.
Ernie Merrick’s side will travel in confident mood, however, having already won three times on the road this season and scored a competition-best 21 goals in nine games.
Our Westfield W-League side have endured a similarly arduous start to the season travel-wise, but they’ll be enjoying a bye this week having cemented top spot with a gritty 1-0 win at Western Sydney last weekend.
Bobby Despotovski’s side return to action on December 16th when they face Newcastle Jets at McDonald Jones Stadium.
City in their sights
Our Foxtel Y-League side do have a fixture this weekend, however, in the form of an away trip to Melbourne City on Saturday morning.
The youngsters will be seeking their first win of the season after suffering narrow home defeats at the hands of both Adelaide United and Brisbane Roar.
Their game has been moved to the Melbourne City Football Academy with a local kick-off time of 1.30pm.
Road to recovery
The club’s medical staff are optimistic that Andy Keogh will be fit in time to face the Jets this weekend after missing the Central Coast game due to a groin injury.
Adam Taggart, Diego Castro, Andreu and Scott Neville, meanwhile, are all continuing to make progress, as are long-term absentees Marc Warren, Daniel Stynes and Joel Chianese.
Chianese, in particular, looked to be in good nick during a tough training session on Tuesday.
Don’t forget that if you fancy a festive bargain, you can grab two family passes (two adults and two children) to our upcoming games against Newcastle and Wellington for just $99.
That’s a saving of 50% on gate prices!

Gunning for the Jets
Chris Harold is set to make his 150th Hyundai A-League appearance on Saturday and if history is anything to go by, there’s a decent chance he’ll celebrate the milestone by finding the net.
The 25-year-old has scored more times against the Jets than any other club, bagging five in 17 appearances, with two of those goals coming during our 6-1 triumph at McDonald Jones Stadium in January 2016.
