Most wins in a season

Perth's 17 wins from 25 matches this campaign is a club record for most in a regular season, beating their previous best tally of 14 in 2014/15.

Highest points tally

Those 17 wins have also ensured Perth have set a club record for the most competition points registered, with their current 57 topping 2014/15's total of 50.

Away days transformed

For so long, the Glory were hamstrung by their tendency to falter away from Western Australia, but Popovic has rectified this deficiency in emphatic style.

They have claimed eight wins on the road so far this season, beating their previous highest tally of six in 2014/15.


Perth have scored a huge 26 goals away from home, their best haul since 2016/17's total of 22 – and they have conceded just 10 on their travels, managing five shut-outs in the process. They will need a clean sheet in their final away fixture against Sydney FC on Thursday to beat 2014/15's record of 11.

And they're not bad at home either. Perth's win over the Jets means they have won nine matches on their own turf this season – beating their previous best of eight.

And still to come... most goals in a season 

With Andy Keogh, Diego Castro and Chris Ikonomidis leading the charge, Perth have been a potent attacking force in 2018/19.

And having scored another against the Jets, they are now two goals away from equalling their club record for most goals in a regular season, 53 in 2016/17.

... and Perth are on course to smash their defensive record too

The Glory have conceded 22 goals in 2018/19: they need to keep that tally under 29 (2005/06) to break that record.
