Perth Glory vs Wellington Phoenix: Prediction

Both teams should provide us a great contest as either team will be motivated for the three points.

This will be a Battle between one of the most goals conceded sides in Perth against one of the least scoring teams in Wellington.

It is a tough task for the Phoenix to come all the way from Wellington to Perth to get a win but knowing they have done that in the previous season and the Glory not in great home form, should give the team confidence.

The Glory need to show the fight they have shown in their last 2 matches in this match and if they can do that, a win should be coming their way.

A win for the Glory will not see them move up any higher but a Wellington win will see them overtake the Glory in fifth spot so plenty to gain for the Phoenix.

Despite losing their last 2 home games, Perth Glory should be able to overcome Wellington Phoenix and get a win in this fixture.

Perth to win at 2.10 (11/10)
