This is it! It’s the final live blog of the year on The Stoppage Time. Kevin Muscat‘s Melbourne Victory are in a sort of a tailspin and will need to right the ship when they face Kenny Lowe‘s Perth Glory at AAMI Park in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It’s a post-Boxing Day clash you don’t want to miss. The Victory are currently 5-1-5 (16 points), good enough for fifth place on the Hyundai A-League ladder, while Perth are 3-2-6 (11 points), good for eighth on the ladder.
