Impressive win has Glory up and running
Goals from midfield duo Giordano Colli and Aaron McEneff guided Glory to a deserved first win of the season as they downed Central Coast Mariners 2-1 in Gosford on Sunday.
Samuel Silvera had fired the hosts into the lead 20 minutes in, but Colli restored parity from close-range just before the break and early in the second half, McEneff calmly claimed his second of the season which proved enough to seal all three points.
The result extended Glory’s unbeaten record in Gosford to six games and Head Coach Ruben Zadkovich was understandably delighted at the character his side showed to come from behind and seal victory.
“We’re working really, really hard as a group, so I’m just really proud,” he said.
“We showed a lot of belief and resilience.
“The boys have been huge in the three games, albeit in performances that haven’t been near what we wanted and that’s because we’re a group in our infancy.
“It’s going to take time, we’re going to have to build on our structures and our processes, but if they show that level of work rate, effort, fight and mentality as a group, then we’ll definitely get there.
“It’s something to build on."
Perth are back in action next Sunday when they play away to Adelaide United.
