MATCH SUMMARY

 

If there is to be an upset this round then the Glory could provide it. Perth are under immense pressure to turn things around after being belted over the past week or so by Sydney FC and then Adelaide. Kenny Lowe and his team need to turn things around and quick smart and the benefit of back-to-back home games will be to their advantage. Melbourne City head west not in the best of form, however, pulled one out of the fire last week in snatching a dramatic win against Wellington 2-1.

Win-Draw-Win

PERTH

 

Lowe and the Glory squad will be keen for a bounce back here and have the right scenario to do it in considering they played at home on the weekend. The extra travel and short turnaround may play against City and although Perth has several injury concerns, including the absence of Mitch Nichols, if they are to turn their season around it has to be here.
