Hyundai A-League stats preview: Glory v City

Perth Glory will be desperate to turn around a horror fortnight when they play host to Melbourne City on Tuesday night at nib Stadium. 

Glory remain just one point adrift of the Hyundai A-League top six despite heavy back-to-back losses to Sydney FC (6-0) and Adelaide United (3-0). 

It doesn't get any easier against third-placed City, though Perth did win the previous meeting between the two teams in Round 8 at AAMI Park (3-1). 

Check out some of the key stats and facts ahead of this mid-week fixture.
