Heffernan ready for selection

Heffernan ready for selection

Perth Glory recruit Dean Heffernan says the club’s poor record in the Hyundai A-League is driving the players towards a tilt for this season’s championship.

Perth Glory recruit Dean Heffernan says the club-s poor record in the Hyundai A-League is driving the players towards a tilt for this season-s championship.

“We-ve had some tough times here at Perth and the boys know that and they don-t want to go back to it and I think that-s why we-ll keep winning,” he said.

The versatile left footer is ready to play his first game for Perth Glory after passing a fitness test on his injured knee this morning.

“Yeah very good, I did a full-on session today so I-ve got the all clear to join in with the boys tomorrow.”

But Heffernan concedes it won-t be easy walking into a side that is unbeaten in its last seven games.

“I still have to work my way into the team,” he added.

“The boys are on a massive run at the moment and it-s great to see.

“Hopefully I can contribute and help continue the run.

“I wouldn-t expect anything less, I am ready to work for it and have been since I got here so just looking forward to getting an opportunity.”

The Glory-s golden run has also seen the team score 7 goals in the past two games.

“It-s been good to see, it-s been entertaining and plenty of goals and I think we are starting to reach the potential that the team has got.

“There is still a bit of a way to go and we-re not in the finals yet and we know with the A-League how things can turn around so everyone is aware of that.”

Heffernan will wear number 35 for the remainder of the season.
