Perth Glory will be looking to maintain their 100 percent home record when they host Western Sydney Wanderers this afternoon. We’ll have live scores from nib Stadium from 5.00pm AEDT.

Perth Glory came into round seven of the A-League sitting well-placed in fourth position, and a win here could take them as high as second.

In a dogged contest last Sunday they left Hindmarsh Stadium with a 1-1 draw after Billy Mehmet put the Glory in front, only for Dario Vidosic to equalise and ensure the points would be shared.

With Shane Smeltz returning to the fold the Glory are beginning to hit their straps and that signals trouble not only for today’s opponents, but for the entire competition.

Western Sydney were perhaps unlucky to go down 2-1 at home to Newcastle last weekend after they relinquished a 1-0 lead to lose 2-1, despite storming home in the final 15 minutes.

Like they have in all of their six matches, the Wanderers gave red and black fans plenty to be pleased about in what was another confident display.

Today represents a far harder test for the league’s new boys. Nobody enjoys travelling to Perth at the best of times but nib Stadium has become a fortress of late, and expected temperatures of around 30 degrees certainly won’t make the job any easier.

The onus will be on the more experienced heads to stand up and be counted this afternoon. Under coach Ian Ferguson the Glory have become the most physical side in the A-League and if Western Sydney allow themselves to be bullied, they’ll almost certainly make the long flight home wearing the effects of a loss.
