Perth Glory are within three points of sixth place Adelaide United and a spot in the A-League finals after going three matches unbeaten.

After a horrid mid-season slump in which Perth dropped as low as ninth, the boys from the West have enjoyed a resurgence and under-fire coach Kenny Lowe thinks there might be more to come.

The always enigmatic Englishman sensed his team are pulling together at the right time of the season and with important players returning from injury it could be an ominous sign for opposition teams.

“They can feel something happening,” he said.

“They wanna make something happen.

“They’re catching up every little bit of lost time that some of them have had (through injury).”

Perth’s season has been riddled with injuries to several players at key stages in the season none more crucial then tonight’s absentee Diego Castro who missed out with a sore calf.

A continually changing starting eleven has stunted Glory’s synergy as a unit but the additions of Dino Djulbic and Neil Kilkenny have added a sense of security to the side.

There’s no secret that Glory’s little resurgence has coincided with the return of a number of senior players from injury and Lowe was quick to acknowledge this.

“We’re getting people back,” he said.

“When you get to the stage where you’ve got Chris Harold, Shane Lowry and Adam Taggart on the bench for the first time ever for the year, you’ve got real pressure for places.

“You see performances because of that.”

Glory have three of its remaining four games of the season at home and with a near full strength side now available the team from the West have put all A-League sides on notice.

With one of the league’s deadliest trio’s in Taggart, Castro and Andy Keogh set to reunite next week against Melbourne Victory another victory for Perth would send a huge ripple through the league.
