NPL WA: Glory youngsters brace for tough battle against Subiaco


Perth Glory is back in PS4 NPLWA action on Saturday, when the youngsters travel to Rosalie Park to take on Subiaco AFC.

After a washed out game against Armadale last week in which the match was abandoned, striker Joe Knowles said ithis weekend was a vital clash for both sides.

“Subiaco this week is a massive game for both of us but I’m confident in our team and think we can put up a positive show and get the three points,” he said.

“We have been playing some good football in recent weeks and a win will help us move clear of the relegation zone and start to climb the table.”  

Glory Coach John Gibson said the week off was a let down and had gone into the game full of confidence after beating Sorrento the previous week.

“We were really motivated to play against Armadale on the back of a good result but to be honest, the officias made the right call on the day, under appalling conditions.

“Health and safety is paramount in sport, and we look forward to the re-scheduled game.”

Saturday’s match at Subiaco is another opportunity to climb the table and Gibson said the players were looking forward to the challenge.

“Subi had a good win last week, but our focus is always on ourselves, the group as always is ever determined to be better at the details, process driven,” he explained.

“The group is super competitive – but we must maintain our high standards for the 90 plus minutes.

“Like every game in the NPL – it’s always tough and you must be switched on from the get-go, but if we maintain our ever improving consistent performances – we will be happy.”

Kick-off between Glory and Subiaco is at 3pm.
