Australian Football: Garcia gleeful as Glory head home

Perth Glory head coach Richard Garcia has heaped praise on his players, as they prepare to finally head home to Western Australia.

Garcia was speaking after seeing his side battle back from two goals down to secure a 2-2 draw at Melbourne City, with Bruno Fornaroli and Callum Timmins their goalscorers.

And Garcia is hoping that a return to home comforts in Perth will make a major difference, with Glory down in down in ninth place in the A-League standings and 11/5 to improve and earn a top-six spot.

Garcia takes positives from defeat

He told his club's official website: "I don't know how much more I can smile. I think it's a fantastic feeling knowing that we're going to be home and back to a bit of normality.

"Just a bit of that normality will be fantastic, then it's back to business. We've got a heavy schedule now and the boys will be fully focused."

City fightback showed spirit

Of the fightback against City which ensured a share of the spoils, Garcia added: "I'm very proud of a group that has gone through a lot and which could easily, after the last couple of results, have gone under with those two goals.

"But they showed the resilience that we keep talking about to come back and I think they've shown resilience throughout the last four months.

"It's been a tiresome four months of travelling and I think they've dealt with it very well."

Next up for Glory is a visit from Adelaide United on Sunday, with Perth unbeaten across their last four meetings with the Reds.
