Western Sydney Wanderers v Perth Glory - Friday 19:30, Fox Sports 4

The Wanderers have stumbled somewhat in the last couple of weeks, suffering a shock 5-2 defeat at home to Perth before they drew 1-1 at the out of form Sydney on Saturday. Despite that, they still top the table heading into this round and will be looking to get their first win in four games here. They host Perth, who won for the fifth game in a row when hosting Brisbane in a 6-3 thriller as they continue their climb up the table and now trail Victory and Sydney, currently 5th and 6th, by just a single point.

The Wanderers have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last seven games, this after keeping six in their 10 games prior to that and it is for this reason that their form looks to have dipped as their scoring rate has remained pretty consistent. They’ve found the net in their last seven, averaging 1.9 goals in these games. Their home record this season is W6-D1-L3, though they’ve only won one of their last four at the Parramatta Stadium. Their home record against sides between 4th and 7th this season is W3-D0-L1 with that defeat coming against excellent travellers Sydney.

Perth have scored a remarkable 18 goals during their run of five wins (3.6 gpg), leading at half-time in each of these games, though they’ve only managed one clean sheet in this time and indeed just the single clean sheet in their last 10. Their away record this season is W3-D1-L6, with those three wins each coming in their last three road games against current bottom-half teams Sydney, Wellington and Newcastle.

Glory have travelled to each of the top-four already, losing all four of these games with three 1-0 defeats and the other a 5-1 thumping at City, their only loss by more than one goal on the road this season. The Wanderers have only won two of their 10 home games this season by more than one goal and since they’re struggling for form at the moment whilst Perth are probably the form team in the division along with Adelaide, we’re backing them +1 on the Asian handicap which means if they win or draw it’s a winning bet and if they lose by one goal we get our stake back.
