Perth Glory v Sydney FC Saturday 7 January 6PR Stadium, Perth Local kick-off: 4pm
The penultimate match on the fixture list will have been giving Perth Glory-s squad many a nervous moment with the last meeting against Sydney FC producing a record-shredding 11-0 win for the Sky Blues.
On that occasion Glory suffered a second half collapse under the relentless attacking pressure of Sydney-s star-studded team. The result precipitated a mid-season crisis in the west although Glory showed signs of improvement in their most two outings against Adelaide United and Newcastle Jets.
Glory will need to maintain their focus and organisation should they fall behind, in order to avoid a repetition of that infamous result early last month.
Ominously Sydney should be highly be focused for this one as they now have little margin for error following last weekend-s costly home defeat against Newcastle Jets.
The Sky Blues will welcome back attacking fullback Servet Uzunlar from suspension while they will also hope to have experienced midfielder Heather Garriock return after persistent eye problems.
Sydney face Brisbane Roar in the final round with a host of players walking the yellow card tightrope over the coming fortnight and hoping to avoid a one-match suspension prior to the finals.
