Glory team spirit is pleasing Lowe

-

After convincingly beating Wellington 2-0, Kenny Lowe has said his side’s team spirit is the most satisfying aspect for him early in the season.

“I could hear them out there themselves, saying ‘no no, we will come away with this’.”

“You could hear them all verbally, and that is really pleasing.”

After finishing the game carelessly against the Central Coast Mariners and blowing a 3-0 lead to draw 3-3, Perth started in the same vain against Wellington, finding it difficult to break down the Phoenix, who were the better team in the opening 20 minutes.

Lowe suggested however that his team had learnt from last week’s disappointment.

“It shows they care and shows they’ve taken things on board during the week”

It was a commanding performance from Perth, who without two-goal hero from last week, Adam Taggart, showed they still have enough creative flair. Diego Castro, Andy Keogh and Chris Harold in particular filled the void, constantly causing havoc for Wellington’s central pairing of Andrew Durante and Marco Rossi.

Wellington found it tough in the final third for the majority of the match, with coach Ernie Merrick suggesting his team should have made the early dominance in the game count.

“I thought we started off really well, I thought there was some good passing moves.

“The first 15-20 minutes we really got off to a good start.”

“Nothing to show for it though, and it’s all about scoring goals.”

Merrick was brutal in his assessment of his team’s attacking prowess against Perth, whilst praising Perth ‘keeper Liam Reddy for some critical saves late in the game.

“In that front third we weren’t deadly at all really.

“The Perth defence did well. I thought Liam Reddy pulled off some crucial saves.”

The loss leaves Wellington with plenty of work to do, having taken zero points from their opening two games.

Meanwhile, Kenny Lowe is a happy man and with the depth of talent in the squad, Perth Glory should be focused solely on what they can achieve, sentiments echoed by the English coach.

“It’s about what we do, and hopefully what we do is good enough”

Perth sit equal-third in the table with the Newcastle Jets, and with an away trip to Melbourne City next week, they need to muster all the spirit they can to stop a rampant Tim Cahill and co.
