The Glory saw a change in management as Tony Popovic has arrived earlier this year.
After finishing 8th in the league last season with the second most goals conceded the team would want Popovic to bring them back on track.
The best performance for Perth in the league was back in 2012 when they were runners-up.
Adam Taggart left the club after being their best scorer in 2017/18 campaign. They brought in former Lazio and Western City Winger Chris Ikonomidis. He will be facing familiar faces in Sundays Match.
Brendon Santalab is another player who Perth inked this season from Wanderers.
Sydney side will be looking to take revenge for the 3-1 defeat from last season against this opposition. Former Bayern Munich player Markus Babbel was given the duty of managing the Wanderers this season.
After a 7th place finish, just one point above their hosts this Sunday the team will want a better run this year.
