Perth Glory's Mehmet aware of Kewell threat

Perth Glory striker Billy Mehmet knows very well the attacking threat that Melbourne Victory's Harry Kewell possesses.

Mehmet, who spent his youth academy days with West Ham United before moving on to Scotland's Dunfermline Athletic and St Mirren, says he used to watch the former Leeds United and Liverpool winger a lot during his days in the UK and is aware what he can produce when at his best.

"Growing up in England I used to watch him play for Leeds and he's got everything in a game so we'll have to stop that, but I'm sure with the boys at the back we'll combat that," he said ahead of the Glory's home meeting with the Victory on Sunday.

"It's going to be tough, but on the day anything can happen."
