Glory season made to wait

Perth Glory will be made to wait for their season opener another four days set to play Adelaide now on January 20.

Perth will be three games behind most of the rest of the competition and will need to play quick fire games to make up those matches.

Glory CEO Tony Pignata said there was room to make up games.

"There's room to play weekend, midweek, then weekend and catch up. We were hoping to have everything caught up by mid-Feb, maybe now end of Feb, but it really depends on what happens with state border closures.

"Close borders and teams can't come to us, we can't go to them ... we're just hoping things improve quickly."

There is some concern amongst A-League pundits that the season could be suspended due to the border closures.

Pignata said he wasn't confident that the season would be unscathed.

"The aim is not to have a break in the A-League but we're going to be dictated by each state and how they respond to each other state."
