Glory move to the summit

Perth Glory claimed top spot in the A-League with a 2-0 away win over Adelaide United.

Both the visitors' goals came in the final 17 minutes with Andy Keogh and Chris Ikonomidis the men on target at Coopers Stadium.

The Glory are one of two teams unbeaten after the first four rounds and are two points clear of that side, Sydney FC. They were impressive against the Reds and could have scored twice in the opening 22 minutes.

First Joel Chianese was played in by Keogh but fired against the bar from inside 10 metres. Then Irish striker Keogh missed from close range with a good chance.

Adelaide had two shouts for penalties in the first half with both being denied by the VAR.

Video checked first that Ben Halloran hadn't been fouled in the area in a collision with goalkeeper Liam Reddy and six minutes before the break it was adjudged that a shot striking Perth defender Shane Lowry on his arm had been outside the box.

Having missed out on two possible spot-kicks, the hosts then saw German midfielder Mirko Boland forced off in the second half with a hamstring injury.

It got worse for them on 73 minutes when goalkeeper Paul Izzo made a good save to keep out Alex Grant's header only for the rebound to fall to Keogh who tapped home from close to the goal-line.

Perth made sure of their third win of the campaign in the final minute when Ikonomidis slotted into an unmarked goal after going round Izzo.

The Glory are 5/1 to win the Grand Final and 9/20 to win their next game against Central Coast, who are 11/2 with the draw 7/2.
