Perth Glory defender Dino Djulbic is rallying his teammates to delay Sydney FC's Premiers' Plate celebrations when the Sky Blues visit nib Stadium next weekend.
Stopping Sky Blues Perth's motivation
A win againt Perth Glory would seal the Premiers' Plate for Graham Arnold's Sydney FC but Djulbic wants to use that as motivation to help Glory secure their chances of a top four finish and a home final.
"We haven't had much success against them this year.
"But we don't want them to win the minor Premiership here so we gotta try to do our best to spoil it for them."
Split round perfect for Glory
Glory have had the chance to rest and rejuvenate following the loss to Melbourne Victory last week.
Djulbic says the week off due to the split round has come at an ideal time.
"We have a couple of injuries so it gives them time to come back hopefully and obviously after our loss, it's good to regroup and kick on against Sydney next week.
"We've got three home games coming up and i think it's a good time to recharge the batteries a bit before the finals."
