Why we don’t like ’em
Because of our record against the Sandgropers. Perth has had the wood on Victory in recent clashes, winning three of the past five encounters, and the two match-ups this season.

Former England international Robbie Fowler chose to produce his best performance against us this season with a hat-trick in a 3-1 win at Perth, which remains the only individual treble scored in the A-League this season.
