Perth A-League players are refusing to touch the FFA Cup trophy for fear of jinxing themselves ahead of Saturday night's final against Melbourne Victory at AAMI Park.
Glory coach Kenny Lowe joined a group of his players in posing alongside the trophy on Thursday - but no one would dare touch it.
"I'm under orders not to. I'll get fined by the lads," Lowe said.
"At the end of the day, if we touch it after 90 minutes or 120 minutes (after winning Saturday's match), that will do me."
