Kenny Lowe isn’t counting his chickens just yet…
Perth Glory boss Kenny Lowe has played down his side’s early season form, saying they were “three games away from a crisis”.

Glory went to the top of the A-League table following a 1-0 win over Central Coast on Sunday – their first ever win in Gosford in ten attempts.
Perth have won four of its opening five games and will be playing for a spot in the FFA Cup final on Tuesday when they take on Victorian National Premier League side Bentleigh Greens.
However, Lowe says there is still a long way to go before the Glory achieve anything of note.
“It’s early days for us, we’ve got a new squad, new coaches,” Lowe said.
“(We’re) three games away from a crisis. That’s the nature of the game. You can’t get carried away. We’re doing well. Everyone’s working really hard everyone’s in with each other.
“It’s no different to last year except we’re winning games. We’ve got a couple of guys who can score goals. I’m no different to where I was last year.”
Perth are one point clear of Melbourne Victory, Sydney FC and Adelaide United on top of the A-League table.
They play host to Asian Champions League winners Western Sydney Wanderers on Saturday, with the Wanderers having yet to register a point in its three games.
