ANALYST

The A-League is back in action with another set of matches this weekend as Perth Glory take on Western United on Friday. Both teams made underwhelming starts to their campaigns and have a point to prove in this match.

Western United are in 12th place in the A-League standings and have been largely inconsistent this year. The hosts suffered a 1-0 victory against Melbourne Victory in their previous game and will need to bounce back this week.

Perth Glory, on the other hand, are in sixth place in the league table at the moment and have not been at their best in recent months. The Western Australian outfit played out a 1-1 draw against Adelaide United last weekend and will need to step up in this fixture.
