PERTH Glory will host this Sunday’s W-League grand final against Melbourne City at Perth Oval.

It will be the second week in a row without travel for Glory after its 5-1 semi-final annihilation of Sydney FC on Saturday.

A Vanessa DiBernardo double led Glory to the triumph in a thrilling end-to-end encounter.

Glory came from behind in front of 1592 fans as the side made a statement against a Sydney side featuring a host of Matildas stars.

Melbourne’s 1-0 extra-time victory over minor premiers Canberra United kept its title defence alive.
