Glory days continue
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.
