The talented Tunisian has also delivered the most crosses (34) and he is Glory’s most fouled player (25).

Of the 14 previous games played between the two clubs in WA, Glory have won seven to Wanderers’ two.
The last time the red-and-blacks headed back over east with three points in their hand luggage was in February 2014.

Andy Keogh is the overall top scorer in this fixture by a remarkable margin of six goals.
