"Fortress nib" for rapidly improving Perth Glory

Perth Glory's trademark late-season surge has returned as nib Stadium returns to being a fortress for the Glory boys.

Kenny Lowe's men have now won four games in a row at home as they continue their push for a spot in the six. 

Their last four-game winning streak at home came at the end of the 2016/17 season and first two games of the current season.

But Glory must keep winning. And that will be tested when Sydney FC - with one hand on the Premiership trophy - come to Perth on Thursday night. 

And after Andy Keogh's impressive display, Glory will feel confident of getting points off the Sky Blues.

Perth are now one point out of the six as they and Roar chase down Wanderers.
