The clash between top of the table Perth Glory
and last placed Central Coast Mariners was what you might have expected.
It was obvious why the two teams are at opposite ends of the table, with Glory clearly dominating the game and a lack-lustre Mariners struggling to find any real offense. The home team were held to only one shot on target by a strong Perth Glory defence and the closest they came to scoring was from a free kick that came off a Glory head to hit the crossbar.
The boys in purple opened the scoring in the 12th minute with a great inside the box finish from Joel Chinese. Djulbic doubled the lead with a big header from a corner to take Glory comfortably into the break 2-0 up. A foul on Diego Castro in the box ended in a penalty and Kilkenny easily slotted home from the spot to wrap up the game and ensure the three points.
Tony Popovic was pleased with the performance and happy with his team’s effort saying: "Overall, it was an excellent display."
At the end of the day, the clinical passing and fluent ball movement was too much for the home team and it was a well-deserved win for a dominant Glory side.
With only 3 games left, Perth Glory remain a comfortable 6-points clear at the top, but a tricky last few games are still to come. Big matches against 2nd place Sydney FC and 4th
place Wellington Phoenix will be a final test for our Glory boys and will determine the seasons result.
