Performance key in practice clash

After pushing Wolverhampton all the way last week, Perth Glory will be looking for a repeat performance when they tackle English Premier League outfit Fulham in Perth on Wednesday night.

After pushing Wolverhampton all the way last week, Perth Glory will be looking for a repeat performance when they tackle English Premier League outfit Fulham in Perth on Wednesday night.

The Glory had their chances in a 1-0 loss to Wolves on Friday night in a match Perth coach Dave Mitchell said provided his team with a valuable learning experience.

Mark Schwarzer's Fulham will provide Glory with a sterner test but Mitchell has told his charges to enjoy the match rather than worrying about the result.

"This is a pre-season friendly, it's about us getting our shape and being organised, repelling Fulham, and having a go at the correct time,” Mitchell said.

"I-ve said to the lads to enjoy the game and enjoy the experience.

"It's not often you play top quality opposition like Fulham and by playing against them and watching how they go about things we-ll learn a lot.

"We know they're a good side and we like to learn off these teams. We learnt things playing against Wolves and we'll pick even more things up against Fulham I-m sure.

Glory recruits Branko Jelic and Chris Coyne aren-t expected to play in the match as they continue to build their fitness base while Jacob Burns won-t be risked after pulling up sore from the match last Friday.

Fulham have played two matches in Australia already with a 2-1 loss to Gold Coast before bouncing back with a 3-0 win against Melbourne.

"They're preparing seriously for the game and it will be a good test for us,” Mitchell said.

"You want to do well but it-s the performance that I'm after, not necessarily the result."
