Ladder leaders Perth Glory start 2019 with a bang

Perth Glory are sitting pretty a game clear at the top of the A-League table.

With eight wins, two draws and just the one loss, Perth Glory’s form this A-League season is a sight to behold.

They’ve started the year with a bang as well, knocking away four second-half goals against Brisbane Roar yesterday, making it eight from their past two clashes after dispatching of Central Coast in a similar manner on New Year’s Eve.

The Glory have a huge run of home games coming up which will excite fans in Perth, with four of the next five at nib Stadium in January. This Wednesday (9 January), sees 1 v 3 in one of the most anticipated clashes of the season as they face Sydney FC. The Glory will be desperately seeking redemption with Sydney the only side to beat them this season.

The Glory will then face Western Sydney Wanderers on Sunday 13 January, kicking off at 5pm.

See all the highlights as Perth Glory knocked off Brisbane Roar 4-2 yesterday to maintain their place at the top of the table.

After battling it out with Melbourne City, Perth then face Adelaide United on Wednesday 23 January, followed by Newcastle Jets on Sunday 27 January. The Glory will be forced to go most of the month without star forward Chris Ikonomidis who is away on Socceroos duty at the Asian Cup, depending on how the Aussies fare in the UAE. Ikonomidis has already scored six goals this season, with Irish striker Andy Keogh netting seven to sit third in the league’s goal-scoring tally.

Tony Popovic has reinvigorated the Glory side this season, and they don’t look like slowing down anytime soon. Can they finish the season strong and go all the way to claim a maiden A-League Championship?

Head on down to nib Stadium to find out and cheer the Glory home, with tickets available at Ticketmaster.com.au.
