Stat Attack: Glory v Western United In Numbers


Sadly, the club’s first ever home meeting with Western United will be played behind closed doors, but a bit of context and a couple of cheeky stats are still handy to have tucked away in the back pocket, even when you’re having to watch on TV.

So let us help with your pre-game prep…
