Western Sydney Wanderers 1-3 Perth Glory: Hosts' Finals hopes virtually ended

Tue 04 August 2020 | 13:21

Neil Kilkenny and James Meredith scored late to boost Perth Glory's top-six chances, while all-but ending Western Sydney Wanderers' hopes.

Perth Glory got back on track with a 3-1 victory that all but ends Western Sydney Wanderers' hopes of qualifying for the A-League Finals. 

Having won their first game when the league resumed last month, the Glory then suffered back-to-back losses to dent their hopes of a top-six finish. 

However, they went ahead at Bankwest Stadium on Tuesday as Jake Brimmer's deflected effort fell into the path of Ivan Franjic, who marked his 50th Perth appearance with a 60th-minute opener. 

Wanderers hit back through Mitchell Duke three minutes later, but Dylan McGowan then handled in the area, allowing Neil Kilkenny to restore Perth’s lead from the spot. 

And substitute James Meredith lashed in a brilliant third from the edge of the box to tighten the Glory’s grip on fifth place. 

The Wanderers remain down in ninth, four points outside the top six with two to play.
