Milestone Men

Glory v Western United - Bruno Fornaroli celebrates

Bruno Fornaroli is set to make his 50th appearance for Glory on Wednesday evening and Chris Ikonomidis is poised to take his career tally of A-League games to 50.

Fornaroli has scored nine times in his 12 appearances against the Reds, while Ikonomidis has bagged two in five.

Distance Diversity

No team has conceded more goals from outside the box this season than Adelaide United who have copped six.

In complete contrast, no team has conceded fewer goals from outside the box than Glory (3).


Ben Halloran in the rain

This season, Adelaide’s Ben Halloran has made 17 carries of the ball which have ended in a chance being created.

Only Melbourne City’s Craig Noone has made more (18).

Rare Joy For Reds

Glory have not lost to the Reds at home since January 2018.

The visitors eased home 3-0 on that occasion, with Daniel Adlung, Nathan Konstandopoulos and Joahn Absolonsen claiming the goals.

Keogh Closing In

Glory v WSW 2021 - Andy Keogh celebrates

Andy Keogh is just three games away from setting a new, all-time A-League appearances record for Glory.

The 35-year-old striker is currently on 141 games, one behind Josh Risdon and two short of current record-holder, Chris Harold.

On A Roll

If Glory claim the points tonight, they will be one win short of equalling the club’s record for consecutive A-League victories which stands at five (from Round 16 to Round 20 in 2015-16).

The club’s longest winning streak in the NSL, meanwhile, was eight games between October and December 2001.
