Tonight’s match brings a month of travelling to an end for Perth Glory, who return west to face Melbourne Victory in two weeks time.
Successive away draws for Perth is far from a disaster, but they have seen their lead at the top cut to six points by Sydney FC.
The Premie’rs Plate will not be decided this month and a home win tonight would give the Sky Blues extra incentive going into their clash with Melbourne City on Sunday.
Adelaide United have been one of the few teams to take anything from Perth Glory this season – a scrappy point back in January.
That goalless draw occurred during a five-game unbeaten run which helped propel the Reds into the top six. A position they are currently in danger of slipping out of.
It’s the goals that have dried up for Marco Kurz’s men, so they will need to be at their very best defensively in this game.
Perth Glory did record a win here in November, scoring two late goals to steal the points. A microcosm of their season.
Both squads have a fortnight’s ‘r&r’ after this match (excluding players on International duty), meaning both sides can leave it all out on the pitch. There is plenty at stake too. Oh, and late drama is more than likely. Get the popcorn ready.
