Ins and Outs – Melbourne City v Perth Glory

Melbourne City will be out to stretch their winning run to five matches when Perth Glory come to town to open Round 6 of the Westfield W-League 2019/20 Season on Thursday night.

City have enjoyed a stunning start to the campaign to sit out on top of the ladder and will start warm favourites against the winless Glory at ABD Stadium.

Bobby Despotovski’s Perth did pick up their first point of the campaign in their draw with Canberra United last weekend but will need to produce a 90-minute performance to upset the league leaders.
