Sam strikes again
Sam Kerr helped herself to another two international goals on Tuesday as the Matildas romped to an 8-0 win over Vietnam at the 2018 AFC Women’s Asian Cup in Jordan.
Glory’s Westfield W-League skipper found the net twice in the space of seven minutes either side of the break as Alen Stajcic’s side secured their first victory of the tournament.
The result means that they now lead Group B on goal difference ahead of Japan who will provide the opposition in their next game on Friday.
The whole season may be on the line for both Glory and Roar this Saturday, but don’t expect a cagey affair to unfold at nib Stadium.
The last six meetings between the two sides have featured no fewer than 28 goals, with neither side keeping a single clean sheet during that time.
And you don’t want to be late taking your seat for this weekend’s game either: Roar have conceded 15 goals within the opening 30 minutes of games this season, the highest number in the league and one more than Glory who have copped the next most in this period with 14.
Roar may be able to draw some confidence from the fact that they have won more games on the road this term (5) than they have at home (4), but you have to go right back to January 2013 to find the last time they claimed three points here in the West.
Having each found the net in last week’s impressive win at Newcastle, Diego Castro and Adam Taggart are locked on seven goals apiece for the season ,with skipper Andy Keogh one behind on six.
Spreading the Glory gospel
