As per the a-league.com.au, Perth’s five-game “club-record” winning streak came to an end after they lost 2-1 to Western Sydney Wanderers, last week. The official A-League source also notes that Perth (28) could “leap-frog” into the top six if either Sydney FC or Melbourne Victory (both 30 points) fail to win in Round 22.
The upcoming clash is an important encounter , especially for the home side as they look to gain home support to edge past the visiting New Castle United. Glory will start as favourites but the Jets haven’t lost in their last four games.
As per the Outside 90 reports, both teams will be looking to finish in the final rounds as we come to the “business” end of the season.
