The Queensland side were always expected to win this contest and they did (1-0).
Perth is really under pressure at the moment with the suspension of club captain Jacob Burns, injuries to regular starters William Gallas and Scott Jamieson, Steve Pantelidis now departed for Malaysian side Selangor FA and star Kiwi striker Shane Smeltz seeing his return cut short after only half an hour through yet another injury.
Dogged defensive resilience can only get you so far in a match.
Glory has not won away all season.
In eight outings the side has the inglorious record of a single goal.
Perth can perhaps be thankful that they managed to escape Queensland with their dignity intact after an insipid display against a rampant Roar, who will certainly be among the favourites for honours this season.
So, what are your thoughts Purple Nights fans?
How can the Glory turn this around?
Do you have a game plan we can share with the side to inspire more goals and victories?
