Perth Glory will hope to inch closer to the final playoff series of the A League as they host Macarthur at HBF Park. Neither team has been convincing at the back this season and Friday’s match is expected to produce goals.

Perth Glory suffered a 3-1 defeat to Wellington Phoenix last time out in the A-League. Joel Chianese's second half effort proved to be a mere consolation as they proved to be no match for Wellington.

The result means Richard Garcia’s men are winless in their last four matches and have dropped to 10th on the table. They have been hampered by defensive problems and are without a clean sheet this season.

Perth Glory have fared slightly better at home and are unbeaten in four of their last six matches at HBF Park.

Macarthur are coming off a 1-1 draw against leaders Melbourne City in their last A-League fixture. They needed a late effort from Michael Ruhs to salvage a point after going behind early in the second half.

It was the second straight draw for Ante Milicic's men who were also held 2-2 by Newcastle Jets in their previous fixture. They are fifth on the table, three points above Wellington Phoenix, who are just outside the final playoff series places in seventh.

Like Perth Glory, Macarthur also struggle to keep things tight at the back and are without a clean sheet in their last four matches.

How the bookies view it

Perth Glory have a slight edge among the bookies with BetVictor offering 11/8 for a home win. A victory for Macarthur is priced at 2/1 by bet365 while a draw is set at odds of 13/5 with Unibet.

The only previous meeting between both teams was a 2-0 victory for Macarthur earlier in April.

Players to watch

Striker Bruno Fornaroli is the top scorer for Perth Glory with eight goals and could be worth a punt in the anytime goalscorer market at 21/20 with bet365 while the first goal is priced at 14/5 by the same firm.

Matt Derbyshire is among the leading scorers in the A-League this season with 11 goals for Macarthur. Bet365 has the striker at 11/10 to score anytime while also offering 4/1 for the fist goal.

Anything else catch the eye?

With both teams often shaky at the back, there should be some value in the goals market. Over 4.5 goals is priced at 24/5 by SBK, who are also offering 45/23 for over 3.5 goals while over 2.5 goals is set at odds of 13/17 by Red Zone.
