PERTH Glory Women will look to continue its flying start to the season this Saturday when it takes on Brisbane at Dorrien Gardens.

It will be the Glory’s first game at their new home, and comes after a 4-2 win over Western Sydney at Perth Oval in round one.

Captain Samantha Kerr, who scored two goals against Western Sydney, said the Roar would present an exciting challenge.

“We want to win every home game, but Brisbane are a really tough side. They beat Sydney FC last week, who are probably going to be top four this season. (Brisbane) were in the semi-finals last year – it will be a tough game but we are looking forward to it,” she told Guardian Express.

Ms Kerr said she was confident Perth could win if the team gets the fundamentals right.

“We will be focussing on our own play and game plan and if we execute it I think we can beat any team,” she said.

The match will start at 4pm this Saturday.
