Western United haven’t made the most of their chances in recent times. Their ‘goals for’ figure stands at just 2 against opposition teams during their previous six outings. In those games, Western United have also seen the number of goals against them come to 15. Historical results aside, we will just have to wait and see if that pattern might be sustained in this match.
Going into this one, Western United have not won at home in their last 4 league matches. That's never good.
In their last fixture, Perth Glory drew 1-1 in the A-League tie with Adelaide United.

Perth Glory have seen success in front of goal in their most recent fixtures, scoring 8 times in their previous 6 matches. While their manager Richard Garcia will no doubt take that as a positive sign, Perth Glory have had their own issues at the back, also conceding in 6 of those same clashes.
