Australian Football: Glory look to climb ladder

Perth Glory coach Richard Garcia says it is important his side start picking up points and closing the gap on the teams above them as they chase a place in the top six.

Glory are targeting a place in the top six of the A-League but have plenty of work to do as they sit on the bottom of the ladder with a host of games in hand.

Playing catch-up

Glory remain seven points off the finals spots but do have four games in hand on Adelaide United who currently sit in sixth spot.

But it is all about having points in the bag and Garcia knows that his side need to start winning more games if they are to have a chance of playing finals.

In fairness only one of their seven games so far have been at home and there is no sign of them returning to Perth any time soon.

However Garcia is focused on the here and now and as they prepare to face the Central Coast Mariners on Sunday, points are the order of the day.

"You need to be able to pick up a good amount of points away from home, we've taken six (points) from six (games) and we need to improve on that," he told reporters ahead of the game.

"At the same time there's been challenges we're trying to overcome. I can't remember the last time we played games back-to-back where everyone was fit and healthy."

Keogh milestone

Meanwhile the game will represent a big milestone for striker Andy Keogh who will make his 150th A-League appearance across three spells with Glory.

"It's just a number. I've been loyal to the club and it keeps being loyal to me," he said. "Perth is my home now and it will be for the foreseeable future.

"I like to think the fans respect someone who stays loyal."
