Stat Attack: Macarthur FC v Glory

Given that Good Friday will mark Glory's first ever meeting with A-League new boys Macarthur FC, we obviously can't offer you a treasure trove of historical facts and figures in this week's instalment of Stat Attack.

But there are still plenty of current numbers to crunch and we've certainly done that, so get your teeth stuck into this lot...

Sharp Shooters

Glory have led the league in terms of shooting accuracy and shot conversion rate all season and continue to do so.

Richard Garcia's men are running at 58% in the former category and 17% in the latter, while Macarthur FC are ranked seventh for shooting accuracy with 45.1%.

Oar-some Assists

Tommy Oar


Tommy Oar has provided the assist for three of Macarthur's last five goals at home.

Two of those have been scored by Matt Derbyshire who is the Bulls' leading marksman with eight.

Heads Up

Glory and Macarthur have scored the joint-highest amount of headed goals this term with eight apiece.

Matt Derbyshire has claimed five of those for the Bulls, while Bruno Fornaroli and Nick D'Agostino have bagged three each for Glory.

On The Brink

Liam Reddy organising


Glory duo Diego Castro and Liam Reddy both remain on the brink of personal milestones.

The Spanish midfielder requires two more goals to take his career tally for the club to 50, while 'keeper Reddy needs one more clean sheet to set a new all-time A-League record of 86.

Seeing Red

When he copped a red card last weekend, Jonathan Aspropotamitis became the first Glory player to be dismissed since November 2019 when Alex Grant received his marching orders, also against the Jets.

Defender Mark Milligan is the only player Macarthur have lost to a red card this season.

Ever Presents

Glory v Sydney FC - Darryl Lachman


Darryl Lachman, Neil Kilkenny and Bruno Fornaroli are the three players to have started all 12 of Glory's A-League games this term.

Goalkeeper Adam Federici has been the only ever present starter for Macarthur.

New South Wails

Glory have failed to win any of their last five regular-season A-League games in New South Wales, suffering four defeats and picking up one draw.

But Macarthur have only won two of their six home games so far this year.

Pass Masters

Benat Etxebarria


Friday's game will see the two players rated highest for passes in the opposition half go head to head in Macarthur's Benat Etxebarria and Neil Kilkenny of Glory.

The former has attempted 561 passes this season with a success rate of 87%, the latter 525 at 84.2%.
