listen to perth glory assistant coach richard garcia on the club's recent slump in form
Perth Glory assistant coach Richard Garcia is adamant the Glory have maintained a high level of confidence despite a recent decline in form.
Perth have conceded nine goals in their last two matches albeit playing away, which Garcia admits has significantly impacted players physically and mentally.
“It’s been a tough couple of weeks, the team isn’t feeling great, but we’ve spoken about it and put it to bed,” Garcia said.
Sitting just outside the top six, Garcia believes it is pivotal the Glory continue to work on the basics and not allow personal grievances to impact performance.
“We just have to focus on things we can control,” Garcia said.
The Glory host Melbourne City tonight before travelling to Melbourne to face the Victory on Saturday.
Garcia highlighted the significance of the Glory using playing at home to their advantage.
“Being at home we have to put our best foot forward and let them know they’re playing away. We’ll come out with all guns blazing going for the win,” Garcia said.
Richard Garcia played 58 games for Perth where he is now an assistant coach under Kenny Lowe.
