'Not one-offs': Glory boss unhappy with concession of late goal

Perth Glory boss Bobby Despotovski was disappointed after his side conceded late in a 2-2 Westfield W-League draw at Adelaide United on Thursday evening.

Glory - who trailed after an early Veronica Latsko goal - hit back in style, with Westfield Matildas star Sam Kerr scoring twice before half-time.

But a red card to ex-Adelaide midfielder Alyssa Mautz reduced the Glory to 10 women and United made them pay, Latsko pouncing with 11 minutes remaining to ensure two of the Westfield W-League’s unbeaten sides shared the spoils.

“We didn’t play the best,” Despotovski told Glory’s official website.

“But I think we did enough to win the game.

“We worked hard in hot conditions to get back into the game after the long ball caught us out for their opening goal, and then in the second half we started a bit sluggishly but got back into the game.”

The manner of Latsko’s equaliser particularly annoyed Despotovski, with the American firing home after Gunnhildur Jonsdottir hit the upright from a corner.

“It’s disappointing that we then conceded from a corner and these are things that we have to address because they are not one-offs,” he said.

“But we’ll take the point, regroup and prepare for Newcastle next week.”

Glory sit second after the draw, ahead of Adelaide United on goal difference and four points behind table-toppers Melbourne Victory.
