Both these teams enter Week 10 recovering from enormous losses last round. It would be fair to say that pride and dignity will be on the line when these two teams take the field at Hindmarsh this Saturday!
Adelaide were thrashed by the Jets last round 7-1 and will be looking to turn it around against The Glory this match.
The Lady Reds have thrown everything they have into each match but continue to come up short.
With two rounds left of the regular season, the Adelaide girls still remain winless. A positive result against Perth would boost the spirits of the team and provide hope for the club.
Their competition this week may also be feeling a little shell shocked from their results last week.
Perth were defeated convincingly by Sydney last Sunday, going down 5-1.
The Glory are still firmly in contention for a finals spot and a crack at the title, however their chances in doing so heavily depend on this matches result.
There has never been a more perfect time to throw on the purple or red and get down to a game and support your team. If you can’t make it to Hindmarsh this Saturday don’t sweat! This match happens to be the ‘Match of Week’ and can be viewed live and exclusive on ABC 1 at 3pm EDST.
