Match Preview: Perth Glory v Western Sydney Wanderers

Sam Kerr returns to Western Australia for Perth Glory's first home fixture of the Westfield W-League 2018/19 Season, out to prove a point and open her goal account against Western Sydney Wanderers.

The 25-year-old was instrumental in Perth's 4-4 draw with Canberra United in Round 2, having a hand in three of her side's goals. 

Glory showed incredible resolve to come from 4-1 down with just eight minutes left to pinch their second successive draw.

And, in a worrying omen for the Wanderers, Kerr has scored three goals in the last two meetings between the teams.

Western Sydney, meanwhile, are yet to register a point or goal this term following defeats to Sydney FC and then at home to Brisbane Roar.

A tough task awaits Dan Barrett’s Wanderers at Dorrien Gardens on Sunday, although Glory's Sarah Carroll remains suspended.

THEY SAID IT

"Although results haven't been in our favour, Dan has made sure our heads have not dropped. We are a good football team and the results will come." - Western Sydney's Erica Halloway
