Stat Attack: Phoenix v Glory In Numbers


We’ve crunched the numbers so you don’t have to!

The long trip over to Wellington awaits the Glory boys this weekend and thanks to our friends at Opta, here’s a stat snapshot of how both teams are travelling and what we might expect to see at Westpac Stadium.

Century in Sight

Andy Keogh pointy celebration


Andy Keogh is in line to make his 100th Hyundai A-League appearance for Glory on Sunday.

The Irish international has scored 44 goals in his 99 games to date, the first of which, interestingly, came against Phoenix at Westpac Stadium in October 2014

Westpac Wins

Glory have a 26.67% win rate at Westpac Stadium, with the most recent of those victories coming in March 2016 when Andy Keogh and Diego Castro grabbed a goal apiece in a 2-1 triumph.

Goals Galore

The last five meetings between the two clubs have yielded a total of 20 goals.

After some lengthy and complex calculations, we’ve concluded that that is an average of four goal per game…!

Hitting the Target

Glory have a competition-high average of 2.20 goals per game this season, while Wellington have the lowest average with 0.60.

Chris Iknonomidis and Andy Keogh are leading the way for Glory with four goals apiece.

Pass Master

Glory v WSW - Neil Kilkenny


Neil Kilkenny is still dominating Glory’s passing stats this year.

The midfielder has attempted the most passes (300), including 180 in the opposition half and has also chipped in with two assists.

Only Melbourne City have completed more passes as a team this season than Glory.

Collecting Cards

Wellington currently boast the A-League’s worst disciplinary record having conceded 77 fouls and copped 13 yellow cards.

Glory, meanwhile, are the second-cleanest side after committing 61 fouls and picking up 11 yellows and one red.

Foxes in the Box

All of Glory’s 11 goals this term have come from inside the box, five have been scored in the opening 30 minutes of games and six in the final 30 minutes.

Fraternal Foes

Glory v Roar - Shane Lowry clears


Brothers Shane and Ryan Lowry could go head-to-head on Sunday after the latter made his first appearance of the season for Phoenix in last week’s clash with Adelaide.

Former Glory man Mitch Nichols could also be set to feature for the yellow-and-blacks.
