Glory days con­tinue

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - Football -

PERTH Glory have one hand on the A-League pre­mier­ship af­ter beat­ing Mel­bourne Vic­tory to win their top-of-thetable clash 2-1 at AAMI Park.

Neil Kilkenny and Diego Cas­tro struck sec­ond-half goals yes­ter­day to swell their lead to seven points on top of the lad­der.

Kosta Bar­barouses’s late ef­fort made no dif­fer­ence to the out­come and, with nine matches to play, Perth are within sight of their first piece of A-League sil­ver­ware.

Show­ing Tony Popovic’s side to be wor­thy ti­tle as­pi­rants, for the sec­ond time this sea­son, they trav­elled to the home of the cham­pi­ons and de­parted as win­ners.

Af­ter their last-gasp 3-2 win in Oc­to­ber, it took a lit­tle longer for both sides to hit top gear yes­ter­day.

The Vic­tory and Glory came into the match as the league’s top scor­ers, but with­out their best strik­ers, and had no clearcut chances be­fore half­time.

The Wan­der­ers’ Josh Ris­don.
