Melbourne Victory will be without defender Sam Gallagher when they take on Perth Glory on Friday night.

The young defender has been suspended for one week after he received a red card for denying Dino Kresinger a clear goalscoring opportunity in the Victory's win over Wanderers FC at the weekend.

The Victory will be searching for their fourth win in five matches when they host a Perth side, who have slumped a little in recent weeks.
