Glory fall to fourth loss since A-League restart

Perth Glory coach Tony Popovic says vast improvements were made from his sides last outing despite a 2-0 loss to Western United on Wednesday night.


Besart Berisha scored the brace that defined the match while at the other end the Glory were unable to convert opportunities.


Perth will now finish fifth or sixth on the A-League table depending on how Western United fare during their last two regular season fixtures.


Popovic believes it was a good performance despite not taking away any points.


"We put the Victory game aside, we played a team that is experienced and in good form and really weren't troubled.


"We conceded two goals from set-pieces and they won the game, so congratulations to them, but if we're going to judge the performance... it was much-improved and we got some minutes into players who have not had a lot of minutes throughout the year.


"We didn't give a chance away in the entire game and I don't think Liam [Reddy] had to make a save, so it was a vast improvement in terms of our defensive display.


"We looked dangerous around the box, but it didn't really fall for us.


"We had some players that were missing today, a few with injuries and niggles that weren't available, but I think this performance will put us in good stead for ten days' time.


"We'll be ready for whoever we play."
