It’s not panic stations for Perth at the moment, but another week without a win will see them in a real battle for a top six spot for the remainder of the season.
Last season’s premiers haven’t won in their last four games and have slipped from second to fifth in recent weeks, just four points ahead of Adelaide in seventh.
All of a sudden, Glory are fighting to remain in a finals place rather than challenging for a top two berth.
After a 0-0 stalemate with Sydney FC last week, can Perth turn things around in this rescheduled Monday night encounter?
United will prove extremely tough to overcome. Following a woeful February in which they didn’t score a single goal for the entire month, United have surged back into form over the last fortnight.
Indeed, United have scored 11 goals in their last two matches, crushing Central Coast and Adelaide to move back into a finals spot.
With an average of over five goals at HBF Park in Perth’s last five home matches, we could be in for another high-scoring affair on Monday night.
Perth Glory – $1.53
Western United – $6.00
Draw – $4.33
