Perth Glory 2-1 Central Coast Mariners highlights: Perth Glory were keen on ending their recent bad run of form when they play host to current A-League leader Central Coast Mariners on Saturday.
Things didn't look well early on for the host as their opponent managed to break the dead lock after just 13 minutes with a goal from Bernie Ibini-Isei. However, the home team grabbed an equalizer midway into that first period through Travis Dodd's effort, forcing both teams to go into the break with 1-1 score.
Both teams continue to search for goals after the break, but it wast Glory that managed to pick up that important strike as Shane Smeltz netted home on 65 minutes and seal an important three points for the host. That defeat still doesn't shake off Mariners' spot though as they continue to lead the A-League.
