Perth Glory still focused on finals

Despite sitting second bottom on the A-League table with the worst record and the heaviest goal difference against, Perth Glory are still solely focused on making the finals.

They are the sentiments of coach Ian Ferguson who feels strongly that the West Australian club have the capability of pushing into the final six before the end of the season.

"The focus for me and the team is that we try and get into the top six," said a defiant Ferguson.

"It's still achievable. I think there are three four teams that are way beyond everybody else and these other two places are probably open."

The Glory get their first break of the season this weekend and Ferguson said it has come at a great time.

"The rest period is obviously crucial," he added.

"We've got a lot of injuries now. Hopefully we can try and mend them up and get them back on the park as soon as possible.

"We're going to be working hard over the next two weeks. Everybody keeps saying it's a rest period (but) the boys are going to be working hard, we've got to keep our fitness up and we've got to work on a lot more shape.

"(But) the priority is to try and get everybody fit first and foremost, get our experienced players back and hopefully they can drive us forward until January."
