Brave Glory knock over Sydney FC

With just five minutes left in the game the Glory looked like they had done enough and squeezed out another through Bruno Fornaroli.


Sydney found a consolation goal in the 93rd minute but it was all too late.


Star import Daniel Sturridge is set to be monitored after looking to sustain a hamstring strain. Coach Richard Garcia quickly moving to potential ease fans nerves describing it as "tight".


“It’s been a very tough few months. The unknown is always very difficult to deal with,” Garcia said

“They were outstanding tonight.


“The way they have bounced back from the setbacks is very pleasing."


Perth are back in action on Wednesday when they take on MacArthur FC.
