Perth Glory distraught after sixth-straight loss
Perth Glory coach Ian Ferguson was shattered after guiding his side to their sixth-straight loss yesterday.
The Western Australian club’s season went from bad to worse when they were outclassed by the previously winless Sydney FC in a match that ended 3-0 in front of home fans.
Ferguson, who took over the reins from Dave Mitchell just over a week ago, said the performance of his players was simply unacceptable.
“It wasn’t good enough pure and simple,” he said.
“That performance was not Perth Glory like and it’s very disappointing.”
Striker Michael Baird said it was not time to for the playing group to take ownership of the situation.
“All the boys need to put their hand up, there are no excuses after six,” he said.
And skipper Jacob Burns was a dejected figure in his post-match interview on Fox Sports.
“We let down the fans, we let down everyone at the club, we've just got to rebuild from there," he told the network.
"They played well, but we added to that as well. You've got to win you're battles. We didn't, we were second to every ball, and you just can't do that.
"We're lacking that drive, lacking that urgency and now we really have to dig down and see what we're about."
