Glory star sent for scans after injury scare

Tony Popovic's side could be without one of their key players next weekend

Perth Glory have confirmed midfielder Neil Kilkenny has been sent for scans after picking up an ankle injury in training on Saturday. 

Results are expected on Monday with initial reports suggesting the 33-year-old could be set to miss Glory's semi-final on Friday night.

Club CEO Tony Pignata, however, took to social media to ease such concerns.

Kilkenny has been a key player for Tony Popovic's side this season scoring six goals and picking up six assists across 26 A-League appearances.

The former Leeds midfielder moved to Perth in January 2018 after being frozen out of the Melbourne City squad. 

Glory will host the first A-League semi-final next Friday night with an elimination final between Adelaide United and City on Sunday to decide who their opponents will be. 

Perth finished first this season to pick up their first Premiers Plate - losing just three times in a stunning first season under Popovic.
