Sturridge injured in Glory loss

Perth Glory are set to be without star import Daniel Sturridge after suffering a groin injury in their 1-0 loss to Mcarthur Bulls.


Sturridge was injected into the game at the start of the second half but just 18-minutes later pulled up lame stretching for the ball and left the field.


Glory coach Richard Garcia admitting they didn't get enough warm up time into the former Liverpool star.

"I don't think he probably warmed up as hard as he probably should have," Garcia said.


"But that sometimes happens in games. We had him in during the half-time and he probably didn't get as much time as he should have to warm up, and he pulled something."


The triumph lifted Macarthur into third spot, while Glory remain 10th but with games in hand.
