Melbourne City can pull two wins clear in top spot when they travel west to take on Perth Glory. Follow the action with live scores right here on The Roar from 9:20pm (AEST).
It appears the Premier’s Plate is City’s to lose, with the gap between themselves and the second-placed Central Coast Mariners now a full three points, plus a whopping 19 goal difference. Just as crucially, they have two extra games in hand.
Their recent 3-1 defeat of the struggling Newcastle Jets was as comprehensive as wins come, though the Jets’ late goal should serve to keep Patrick Kisnorbo and his men far from complacent.
HBF Park has been a fortress for the Glory in the past, but not so in 2020/21. They’ve won just three of seven games at home for the season, with a 3-1 loss to the Phoenix in their most recent match there.
They do have a game in hand on the rest of the competition, so their season certainly isn’t over: however, you suspect they’ll need to cause an upset here to be any chance of making a late finals run.
