Trap favourite Andy Keogh nets hat-trick for Perth Glory in the A-League

It was the Dubliner’s second treble down under.

A HAT-TRICK FROM Irish striker Andy Keogh secured all three points for Perth Glory in their A-League encounter against Melbourne City.

Melbourne City, a sister club of Manchester City, twice pegged the visitors back through a Bruno Fornaroli penalty and Fernando Brandan’s neat finish, but the Dubliner ensured Glory’s second win of the league season five minutes from time.

The former Wolves striker had opened the scoring after seven minutes from close range, before heading home his second of the game just after the break, for his first goals of the new campaign.

And Keogh sealed the win in the closing stages with a neat finish after poor a mix-up in the defence between Josh Rose and goalkeeper Dean Bouzanis.

Last season, the 30-year-old scored in eight consecutive A-League matches, a new record for the Australian league, but failed to add to his 30 international caps under Martin O’Neill after being a regular under former Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni.
