Western United vs Perth Glory Prediction

Despite drawing 4 of their last 5 games the away team has lost just once in their preceding 9 games and they are set to face a side who has lost 9 of their last 10 games across all competitions, I do not see the hosts taking more than a point from this fixture.

Former 2 times Champions League and former Premier League winner Daniel Sturridge who  previously played for Turkish club Trabzonspor has joined Perth Glory recently and made his first appearance off the bench in the preceding match. The English striker is expected to start this fixture and him finding the back of the net should be a popular option.
