Young guns aim for first win of the season


Perth Glory will be eyeing off its first win of the season when it hosts Subiaco AFC in week six of the PS4 National Premier League WA at Ashfield Sports Club.

The Glory youngsters have conceded a late goal in consecutive weeks to let points slip which has left coach John Gibson disappointed for his players.

“Last week at Armadale we were disappointed not to get more from the game. It was another consistent performance from the group, but we must learn to play for 90 plus minutes,” he said.

“Overall, we are delighted with the performances to date and we are heading in the right direction.”

Gibson said the boys have worked hard and have been outstanding, without getting their rewards in games.

“Saturday’s game will be another tight affair, with both sides looking to open their account for the season,” he said.

“We’ve had another solid week of training and we are looking to put in another quality performance.”

Defender Jackson Morgan was on target last week, but the 17-year-old said the players were left really disappointed to walk away with a draw.

“The boys and I were pretty gutted after the game, to let it slip so late was really hard to take, especially as we’ve conceded in the final minutes of our last two games,” he said.

“I thought we deserved three points, and I was really happy to score for the side and was joyful at the time, but getting a draw from that game doesn’t reflect our efforts.”

Morgan knows Saturday’s game is massive, with both sides looking for their first wins of the season.

“We have been playing some very good football and have been competitive in every game, and we’ve been very unlucky not to have secured our first win of the season, but it’s not been for the lack of effort from the side,” he said.

“We have trained hard and worked on our game, and we are very keen and motivated to win on Saturday and kick start our season.”

The match kicks-off at 3pm.

Entry is free for all Perth Glory FC members.
