A draw would suit both teams nicely in Western Australia

A point is all that Sydney FC need to secure Premiership glory and the draw could be the bet at resurgent Perth Glory.

History suggests Sydney can triumph in Western Australia, although they come up against a Glory team who are in good form as they make a late charge for the finals series.

Kenny Lowe's side are unbeaten in four, have won their last four in a row on home soil, and go into battle just a point outside the top six with three games left.

The scars of December's 6-0 drubbing in Sydney probably haven't fully healed but Perth are a far better side now than they were before Christmas.

They are also taking on Sydney at what looks a good time.
Graham Arnold's league-leaders have definitely lost their way over the past month as they have juggled the demands of the Asian Champions League with domestic duties.

Their Champions League exertions have been disappointing and they head for South Korea on Tuesday to face Suwon Bluewings bottom of their section with their fate out of their hands.

The Sky Blues have won only two of their last eight games and even top scorer Bobo, who has bagged four in two clashes with the Glory this term, has gone three games without a goal.

Sydney are the league's leading scorers and have beaten Perth seven times in a row in the league. However, the Glory are finding their form at just the right time and a point would do both sides nicely.
