Round 4 preview: Perth Glory v Adelaide United

Round 4 of the 2020/21 Westfield W-League season begins with Perth Glory hosting Adelaide United, just one week after the Reds clinched victory over the Western Australian outfit.

Alex Epakis oversaw the first game of his tenure as Perth Glory boss in Round 3, falling to a narrow 1-0 defeat thanks to a late converted penalty by Adelaide midfielder Emily Condon.

The result took the Reds to fourth on the Westfield W-League table and left Perth in eighth place, but with games in hand on every team in the league Glory have every opportunity to climb into the top half of the table with a good run of form, starting against Adelaide at Dorrien Gardens on Thursday night. 

The fixture provides a home debut for Epakis as Glory coach along with a number of his new recruits for the 2020/21 campaign but it’s a homecoming for striker Marianna Tabain, who enjoyed a decade at the club between 2008-2018, playing 89 games and scoring 20 goals.
