Perth Glory have injury concerns as they aim to snap a two-match losing run when they take on Melbourne City in Sunday's clash at AAMI Stadium.
A clean sheet will be on Perth Glory's wish list when they take on Melbourne City on Sunday but their strike force is set to be revamped due to injury concerns over Andy Keogh and Nick D'Agostino.
Glory started their A-League campaign with an impressive 5-3 win over Adelaide, but have since slumped to drama-filled losses to Western United (5-4) and Melbourne Victory (2-1).
The two defeats were heartbreaking in their own unique way, with Tuesday's loss to Victory occurring when Glory conceded goals in the 86th and 90th minutes.
Keogh and D'Agostino pulled up sore from that game, with the pair a strong chance to miss the clash with Melbourne City at AAMI Park.
The match will be Glory's fourth in the space of 12 days.
"Andy is struggling a little bit and Nick D'Agostino has also pulled up a little bit sore," Glory coach Richard Garcia said.
D'Agostino has scored three goals in as many games this season, while Keogh has provided numerous assists as an important link-up player.
Even if the duo are out, Glory will still boast plenty of firepower.
Skipper Diego Castro, who missed the opening three games with a leg injury, will return to give the team added spark..
And Bruno Fornaroli is fit and firing with three goals in three matches.
The Uruguayan is looking to add to his tally against Melbourne City, but he also wants to walk away from the game with Glory's first clean sheet of the season.
"We have conceded a lot of goals in these three games, so this is where we have to improve," Fornaroli said.
"I would like to see a clean sheet this weekend, because I know if we keep the clean sheet, we will score at some moment.
"It's never easy. Games change quickly. If we want to be at the top, we have to do better.
"It's about the team. Everyone needs to help to try to get a clean sheet, that's what we want."
Melbourne City have started their season with two wins from their opening three games.
