Australian Football: Garcia keeping calm ahead of Roar clash

Perth Glory coach Richard Garcia is remaining very calm and believes it is only a matter of time before his side start climbing the A-League ladder.

Glory are priced at 9/4 to finish in the top six of the A-League this season but they currently sit bottom of the ladder following a disrupted start to the new campaign.

Games in hand

Glory have picked up eight points from the eight games they have played so far, but seven of those have been away from home as the WA borders have been closed.

Those borders are due to open again on 3rd March meaning Glory will have a glut of games to play at home and Garcia is confident they will soon start climbing.

Garcia hails outstanding Glory

Adelaide United currently occupy third place on the ladder, 10 points ahead of Glory, but have played five games more.

Garcia knows that points in the bag are all that matters but believes his side will start getting them once the games start coming thick and fast.

Upbeat Garcia

"We've only played eight games," Garcia said. "The majority of those have been away from home. When we look at the table, last year we took 10 points away from home.

"We've already got seven, so we're well ahead of where we were last year. There's been a definite improvement in our performances as far as defence is concerned.

"We've lost four games and all have been 1-0, games I felt we should have got something out of. The resilience in the group is growing."

Glory are back in action when they face Brisbane Roar on Sunday and three points against Warren Moon's side are much-needed.
