Perth Glory welcome the Newcastle Jets to HBF Park on Sunday evening in Round 25 of the 2018-19 A-League season. Join The Roar for live scores and coverage from 7pm (AEST).
Perth Glory could make history tonight and clinch the Premiership with two games to spare.
If Sydney FC fail to beat Wanderers in the Derby on Saturday, Glory will lift their first piece of Hyundai A-League silverware with a win.
Glory boss Tony Popovic would love to get the job done tonight in front of a joyous home crowd. And the chance to rest key players ahead of the finals would come as an added bonus.
Newcastle Jets hopes of a finals place are slim to no-chance, but they did prevail in a five-goal-thriller against Western Sydney last weekend.
As far as the head-to-head goes, Glory enjoy this fixture, having lost just two of the last 22 clashes between the clubs.
Because of what it could potentially mean, the Glory players (and fans) will need to control their nerves and excitement.
Newcastle definitely have a goal in them, as they proved in Round 24. This may not be straight forward, but Glory should still have too much for the Jets.
Perth Glory 2 – 1 Newcastle Jets
