Perth Glory suffered another defeat in Friday nightís A-League match.
This time the victorious opponent was Brisbane Roar.
Brisbane had experienced significant struggles of their own in recent weeks, with unexpected losses to teams considered beneath them.
But Glory never looked like they would join the likes of Newcastle in upsetting the table-toppers.
William Gallas, the clubís marquee signing, looks a shadow of his former self.
In the clash at Suncorp he again looked well off the pace.
With tough encounters with finals-chasing teams still to come, itís difficult to see an end to Perthís losing run.
What can Glory do to get out of their current predicament?
