Perth Glory go in search of a club record sixth straight win when they take on Western Sydney Wanderers to conclude A-League Round 15 action on Sunday night.
Wanderers vs Glory kicks off at 6.30pm AEDT at Bankwest Stadium. The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports in Australia.
It’s been a remarkable turnaround for Perth over the better part of the last two months, with Tony Popovic’s side surging from last spot into third.
Glory suffered a slow start to the season after making the Grand Final last year, but they have well and truly hit their straps now, coming into this clash on the back of a five-match winning streak.
One more win would see Perth break their club record, and with just one defeat in their last 10 matches against the Wanderers, they would be confident of earning it.
Popovic returning to Western Sydney also adds another level of intrigue for this showdown, with Perth also having the opportunity to leapfrog Melbourne City into second if they win.
Western Sydney are in dire form and head into this contest with just one win from their last 10 matches – and that was a dramatic 3-2 win over Adelaide last month.
The Wanderers have slumped to eighth position on the ladder and desperately need a spark to re-ignite their season, otherwise they could be battling for the wooden spoon.
Perth have been dominant in this fixture, losing just one of their last 10 meetings and going unbeaten int heir last six. Glory are on fire at the moment, so it will take a much-improved Wanderers showing to see the home side claim any sort of positive result.
