Perth Glory beat City in cagey affair

-

In what was a cagey affair between Melbourne City and Perth Glory, the visitors managed to come out 3-1 victors.

The match’s most controversial moment came when Glory were celebrating their final goal and a member of the crowd appeared to throw a bottle at the Glory players.

Bruno Fornaroli was visibly upset, holding the bottle all the way to the centre circle.

Perth Glory managed to secure themselves an early first half goal against the run of play. Daniel Stynes managed to get a nice shot at goal which looked wayward, however it took a massive deflection of Carlo Armiento to make it 1-0 to the Glory.

City managed to get themselves back into the game after Craig Noone’s shot just hit the post after trying to curl it in. However, Jamie Maclaren was standing right at the far-left hand post to tuck it in to get City back on level terms.

Perth got themselves back ahead after Dane Ingham got his head on a Neil Kilkenny free kick. Though initially ruled offside by the linesman, the VAR overruled him with Connor Metcalfe keeping him just onside.

The Glory secured the win after Nicholas D’Agostino managed to get his head on a well worked Neil Kilkenny free kick.

City’s new recruit Naoki Tsubaki had a good showing in his 52 minutes of playing, showing nice speed on the wings and giving City their best chances of the opening half with his crosses to Jamie Maclaren.

The second half proved to be just as frustrating for the home side, coming close on multiple occasions but failing to secure anything.

For the Glory the second half was more taxing as they were forced to defend far more than they had previously done in all their other fixtures.

This win sees Perth leapfrog City and get themselves to seventh position.
