No fatigue for Glory in win over Adelaide

  • No fatigue for Glory in win over Adelaide

Two out of three ain't bad for Perth Glory who overcame a tough schedule to register their first A-League win of the season, 3-1 over Adelaide at nib Stadium.

Glory had lost their first two A-League matches to Central Coast and Wellington before beating Melbourne City in Wednesday's FFA Cup semi-final.

With a third game in eight days they had every reason to look fatigued but dominated on Sunday to log the victory.

Castro then also came on to score his first A-League goal on the back of another pass from Garcia in the 72nd minute.
