Stat Attack: Roar v Glory


We’ve got milestones and historical trivia galore as well as plenty of key numbers in this week’s Stat Attack.

It’s ex-statly what you need to get up to speed ahead of Saturday’s clash with Brisbane Roar at Dolphin Stadium!


Liam Reddy is poised to make his 100th Hyundai A-League appearance for Glory against a club he also served with distinction between 2006 and 2009.

He becomes the second ‘keeper to hit three-figures in the A-League for Glory, joining Danny Vukovic who played 106 games for the club between 2011 and 2015.

Bravo, Brimmer!

FC Tokyo v Glory - Jake Brimmer

Jake Brimmer is another Glory player in line to reach a landmark this weekend as he prepares to play his 50th game in purple.

The 21-year-old made his debut for the club in October 2017 and has started each of the last five Hyundai A-League games.

Silencing the Roar

Glory are undefeated in their last four Hyundai A-League games against Brisbane Roar (W3, D1), scoring an average of three goals per game in that span.

The two sides fought out a 1-1 draw in their most recent meeting at HBF Park back in Round One.

Pass Pals

Tom Aldred

Roar’s Tom Aldred has made 252 passes to teammate Macaulay Gillesphey this Hyundai A-League campaign, more than any player has made to another so far this year.

Aldred’s passing accuracy record of 89.1% is also the highest among Roar’s defenders.

Fun Fornaroli Fact

Glory frontman Bruno Fornaroli has landed 27 shots on target this season, more than any other player and scored seven goals in his last seven appearances.

However, the Uruguayan has scored only one A-League goal against Brisbane Roar, his equal-lowest tally against any team he’s faced more than once.

Nevs Notches

Scott Neville celebrates for Roar

Scott Neville has scored twice in his 16 appearances for Roar this season, having found the net just six times in 104 games during his two spells with Glory.

His goals this year came against Central Coast in Round 8 and Western Sydney in Round 13.

Fourth Time Lucky

Not until their fourth visit to Suncorp Stadium did Glory manage to score a goal against Brisbane (Queensland) Roar – and then they bagged three in one game!

Efforts from Jamie Harnwell, Jamie Coyne and an own-goal from Craig Moore helped the visitors secure a 3-3 draw in October 2007.

Pass Masters

FC Tokyo v Glory - Neil Kilkenny

Roar’s Jay O’Shea and Glory’s Neil Kilkenny are ranked one and two respectively for passes in the opposition half this term.

The former has totalled 732 (81.1% accuracy) and the latter 623 (83.8% accuracy).

Both midfielders were previously on the books of English club, Birmingham City.
