Perth Glory host Sydney FC in an A-League clash on Wednesday, with both sides desperate for points in what has been a disappointing season so far.

Perth Glory have not won any of their last four matches in the A-League, losing three of those games.

In their last match, they were beaten 3-0 by Western Sydney Wanderers as they conceded three goals in the space of five minutes either side of halftime.

Mitchell Duke scored a brace before James Troisi scored another goal to confirm the points for the Wanderers.

Sydney FC haven't played a game since 13 March, when they beat Newcastle Jets 2-1. Luka Prso gave the Jets a first-half lead in that game, but Milos Ninkovic and Alex Wilkinson scored in the second half to turn the game around.

Sydney FC's scheduled game against Melbourne Victory was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch after incessant heavy rains.


Perth Glory vs Sydney FC Head-to-Head
