Glory Youngsters looking to end Night Series on a high


Perth Glory will be looking to end its QBE Night Series campaign on a high when it faces Group A leaders Inglewood United at Inglewood Stadium on Sunday.

The 2-2 draw against Cockburn City last weekend dashed the finals hopes of the Glory youngsters but head coach John Gibson isn’t giving up on making sure his young charges put in a good shift.

“We played some really good stuff last week against Cockburn, and the group were super disappointed not to have come away with more from the game,” Glory Youth head coach John Gibson said.

“We controlled the tempo for long periods, however we need to improve in the front third and lost concentration twice in transition.”

Glory opened its night series campaign with a 1-0 win over NPLWA giants Bayswater City. It then suffered a narrow loss to defending champions Floreat Athena and a shock loss to bottom of the table Subiaco.

Striker Joe Knowles acknowledged Sunday’s match was a tough test, but he and his teammates were aiming to end the competition with three more points.

“We will always play to win no matter who we are playing. They are a good side but on our day we can beat anyone in the league,” he said.

“It will be hard for Inglewood to beat us. We will be doing all we can to get the win and finish the Night Series off on a high and we  will be doing all we can to get the win and finish the Night Series off on a high.”

The match is this Sunday at Inglewood Stadium. Kick-off is scheduled for 5pm.
