Stat Attack: Glory v Roar in numbers


It’s that time of the week again…

Our friends at Opta have sent through their regular swag of stats and we’ve thrown in a few of our own to keep you fully in the picture numbers-wise as the build up to Saturday’s home clash with Brisbane Roar continues (book your tickets HERE).

Record Chasers

Should Glory draw or win on Saturday, it will equal the club’s longest run of Hyundai A-League games unbeaten (10) and which was set during the 2014/15 season 

A Glory win would also see the club equal its highest number of victories in a single A-League season (14) which was again set in 2014/15

Hot Shot

Neil Kilkenny penalty v Roar

Glory’s Neil Kilkenny has the highest shot-accuracy percentage of any player in the competition this year (of those who have taken more than five shots) with 89%

Travel Troubles

Roar have gone 11 Hyundai A-League games without a win, but the last time they did manage to pick up three points on the road was here in the West in Round 27 of last season

Clearance King

Glory v City - Shane Lowry heading


Shane Lowry is Glory’s clearance king so far this year with 75, leading the way ahead of Ivan Franjic (52) and Tomislav Mrcela (50)

Set-piece Parity

Neither Glory nor Roar have scored a direct free-kick yet this season, but both have found the net four times from corners and the men in purple have successfully converted five penalties to Brisbane’s three

Silencing the Roar

Andy Keogh turns v Jets

Andy Keogh has scored more goals (8) against Brisbane Roar than any other Hyundai A-League club

The Irishman has found the net in both of Glory’s wins over the Queenslanders this term

Start Contrast

While Glory are yet to concede in the opening 15 minutes of any game this year, Roar have shipped seven goals in that period, the highest number in the competition

Friends and Foes

Current Glory duo Ivan Franjic and Liam Reddy both formerly represented Brisbane Roar, while Tando Velaphi made his Hyundai A-League debut for what was then known as Queensland Roar and Roar striker Adam Taggart is, of course, an ex-Glory man
