Perth Glory could find themselves knocked from the top of the A-League unless they find a way to overcome their bogey team Adelaide United next Sunday, but coach Kenny Lowe doesn’t fear Josep Gombau's men in the slightest.
It was a dramatic night at nib Stadium that saw Sydney FC reduced to nine men, Perth Glory to 10 and the home team's two newest signings concede penalties, but the Sky Blues secured a crucial 3-1 win thanks to some brilliance from Bernie Ibini.
This looks like a cracking fixture to round off Saturday's night triple-header. A Sydney FC side reinforced and refreshed by the Asian Cup break cross the Nullarbor to lock horns with competition pacesetters Perth Glory. It's top quality primetime entertainment in WA and you can bet there'll be no-one going to bed early back in the eastern states.
