Stat Attack: Glory v Wanderers

What better way to start the build-up to a very welcome Saturday home game than by throwing together a stats salad and dressing it with historical context?

E Voila!

Goal-King Keogh!

Andy Keogh is the leading scorer in this fixture having found the net ten times, with four of those goals famously coming in last season’s spectacular 5-1 win for the men in purple.

The former Ireland international is way out in front of Diego Castro and Brendon Santalab, each of whom have four goals to their name.

Rarely Dull

This fixture has never produced a 0-0 draw.

Although the first four meetings between the two sides yielded only eight goals, the four most recent clashes have seen 15 fly in.

Minutes Man

Steven Ugarkovic has played the most minutes for Wanderers this season (1861) and is their joint-second-highest scorer with three goals.

In 16 A-League appearances against Glory, however, he has been on the winning side just four times.

Keeping It Clean

Despite starting each and every one of Glory’s 24 games this season, Darryl Lachman has committed only 12 fouls and received just one yellow card.

Antonee Burke-Gilroy and Giordano Colli are Glory’s most booked players with four apiece.

Head Honcho Haliti

With Head Coach Mark Rudan likely to be suspended after being sent from the dugout last weekend, his assistant, Labinot Haliti is set to be in charge of the Wanderers at HBF Park on Saturday.

Haliti scored three times in 16 appearances against Glory in his playing days.

Level Pegging

Saturday will mark the 28th A-League meeting between the two sides, with each having claimed ten wins apiece.

Of the last 11 clashes, however, Glory have lost only two.
