Let’s cut straight to the deep dive into the stats, records and random trivia you need to have at your fingertips ahead of our welcome return to ISUZU UTE A-League action against Brisbane Roar at Moreton Daily Stadium on Wednesday (kick-off at 4.45pm WST).
Keogh On The Cusp
Andy Keogh is closing in on yet another Glory record as he is currently four games away from becoming the first player in the club’s history to make 150 A-League appearances.
The frontman is already the Glory’s A-League appearances record-holder and all-time leading A-League goalscorer (59).
Seven players have started each of Glory’s four A-League games so far this season – Luke Bodnar, Kosuke Ota, Jack Clisby, Darryl Lachman, Bruno Fornaroli, Jonathan Aspropotamitis and Antonee Burke-Gilroy.
There are two former Glory player currently on Brisbane’s books in the form of Scott Neville and Henry Hore.
Perth local Neville made 104 A-League appearances during two spells in purple before moving to the Queenslanders in 2019.
