Andy Keogh could be the answer to Glory’s woes

-

With Perth Glory having succumbed to their fifth straight away defeat at the weekend, this time to fellow cellar-dwellers Adelaide United, rumours are circling that Andy Keogh is returning.

Could it be possible?

The weekends match saw Adelaide dominate proceedings, with 58% possession and 22 shots on goal.

While this was disappointing enough for the Perth side, that they themselves had only 11 shots with six of them on target highlights the major concern for the now bottom placed side.

Glory are lacking goals. Simple.

In nine hours of A-League football Kenny Lowe’s side have scored a measly one goal.

It’s a strike rate on par with George Costanza as a latex salesman. Glory need reinforcements. It is clear the current attacking stocks of Guyon Fernandez (one goal), Sidnei Sciola (two goals) and Chris Harold (zero goals) are not bearing enough fruit.

With problems in front of goal becoming a serious problem for the side, rumours have begun to swirl regarding the return of prolific Irish international striker Andy Keogh.

Keogh scored 12 times in 27 appearances for Glory last term and if the rumours have any weight to them it could be a major coup and turning point for the Perth side.

If Perth are to make something of this season, re-acquiring the former Wolves marksman could go a long way to claiming a place in the top six.

Provided his playing fees are made into his own bank account, of course.
