The most inconsistent A-League team

-

Perth Glory is top of the table when it comes to A-League outfits that fail to deliver on a regular basis.

Glory currently sit in fifth place on the A-League ladder with just the two wins to their name after six matches.

Despite their talented roster Glory are unable to achieve any level of consistency.

Former Johnny Warren Medallist, Diego Castro and Irish striker Andy Keogh headline the talent that Glory have at their disposal.

Kenny Lowe’s men were lucky to escape with all six points from their two victories after narrowly defeating Central Coast Mariners and Adelaide United in the closing stages of both encounters.

Their latest defeat, a 5-2 mauling at the hands of Wellington Phoenix, highlighted the need for consistency if Glory want to have any hope of challenging for the title.

They looked disjointed as they conceded a staggering five goals while Keogh appeared isolated upfront without his strike partner Adam Taggart.

The distance derby demonstrated how Perth can sometimes be their worst enemy as they failed to show up on the day and were rightly punished by the hosts.

They have the second worst defence in the league and the first step to improvement and consistent results will mean that they will have to strengthen their back four.

Defender Scott Neville has failed to perform consistently since his recent arrival from Western Sydney Wanderers.

At the same time fellow ex-Wanderer Andreu also hasn’t had the best of starts in the west and needs to pick up his game if Kenny Lowe’s men want to challenge for silverware.

Perth have a 100 percent record at nib Stadium this season however it’s away from home where they tend to disappoint.

Glory have only picked up one point from their first four fixtures one the road and unless they begin to address their woeful away record they’ll continue to struggle for consistency.
