Keogh and midfielder Rostyn Griffiths were reportedly on light duties, however Lowe says it was just a precaution following the Glory’s tough seven days in which they’ve played three games.
“Some of the lads just pulled up a bit tight,” Lowe is quoted as saying by AAP.
“You’ve got to have the players’ welfare at heart (by easing off at times).
“Especially people like Griffo and Andy, you want to make sure they play games.”
Keogh has scored nine goals in all competitions since his arrival at the Glory, making him one of Lowe’s most prized assets.
Perth currently sit one point adrift top-of-the-table Melbourne Victory in the A-League and are also through to the semi-finals of the FFA Cup.
