Show Preview

Perth Glory welcome Wellington Phoenix to HBF Park on Sunday evening in Round 27 of the 2018-19 A-League season. Join The Roar for live scores and coverage from 5pm (AEST).

A season that started more in hope than expectation for Perth Glory, ends with a home ‘Distance Derby’, a Premiers Plate already secured, and a shot at the Grand Final still to come.

It is unlikely that defeat last week to Sydney FC will affect what should be a celebratory atmosphere inside the stadium tonight.

With 17 wins this season, Tony Popovic has shifted the mindset from hope to expectancy, and Glory fans can feel confident going into Finals football in two weeks’ time.

With Wellington Phoenix still eyeing a top-four finish – depending on other results – Mark Rudan’s men won’t take this match lightly.

The Nix’s coach will certainly demand a better display than his team managed here in February – a miserable 3-0 defeat.

The New Zealanders have been much stronger since, with striker Roy Krishna finding the back of the net 13 times since the turn of the year.

Krishna looks set to beat Sydney FC’s Adam Le Fondre in the race for the A-League Golden Boot.

Wellington Phoenix currently use #CreateHistory in their tweets. Aptly, both clubs can say they have this season. Tonight seems like the perfect opportunity to celebrate that.

I can see this being a high scoring game with Glory ending their Premiership winning season on a high.

Perth Glory 3 – 1 Wellington Phoenix
