Glory end losing streak

10:22 am on 4 November 2010

Perth Glory ended their A-League football losing streak at seven, but only just after fighting out a nil-all draw with the Melbourne Heart in Perth.

The Glory dominated the first half and looked the more likely side to come away with the win.

But Heart almost stole the points at the death, with only the crossbar keeping out Eli Babalj's header in the 91st minute.

Although Perth failed to snare the win, the result at least ends a demoralising losing run that had threatened to completely derail the club's season.

As it stands, Glory remain five points adrift of the sixth-placed Heart, who joined cross town rivals Victory on 17 points.
