Perth coach Mitchell not about to underestimate Melbourne

Perth Glory coach Dave Mitchell will be wary of a Melbourne Victory outfit who have just one win from their opening three matches.

Mitchell understands just how dangerous the reigning champions can be and will be taking every precaution leading into Friday night's clash at Members Equity Stadium.

"I don't think they've had the best of starts but they got back on track last week," Mitchell said. "You underestimate them at your peril."

Despite the Glory notching up their first win of the season against Newcastle Jets on Sunday, Mitchell is not getting too carried away.

"There were signs of improvement in the performance," he added. "There were a lot of passages that were good, some that were not so good and some that were bad."

Perth Glory host Melbourne Victory this Friday night, August 28 at Members Equity Stadium.

Kick-off is at 8:00pm local time (10:00pm AEST).
