…As well as having fans passionate enough to grace any league in the world, something else the Hyundai A-League offers is sheer openness of competition. While the English Premier League has its Big Four and La Liga has its Big Two, here in the Hyundai A-League there are eleven teams all capable of beating each other - making it an enthralling competition. You never know what-s going to happen next.

To illustrate this, no team goes into week four boasting a 100% win record. Indeed, only a solitary side has picked up more than one win in the first three weeks of the Hyundai A-League 2010/11 season.

That team, Perth Glory, will certainly fancy their chances of collecting win number three at AAMI Park on Sunday, having already walked away from the venue with three points this season when they beat Melbourne Victory a fortnight ago.

Robbie Fowler, while proving himself to quite the provider of goals, will be looking to get off the mark this weekend against the Hyundai A-League-s bottom side. Meanwhile, defender Jamie Coyne will be keen to mark his is 100th appearance with a shut-out.

But while the hosts currently prop up the table, they should take Heart in the fact that, although Glory are the early-season pace-setters, their overall record in Victoria isn-t great. In fact, their recent win against Victory was their first ever Hyundai A-League triumph in Melbourne at the eighth attempt.

Heart will also be encouraged by a gutsy display against Adelaide last week, in which Dutch midfielder Rutger Worm became the club-s first ever Hyundai A-League goal-scorer.

Peppering the United goal with attempts and twice clawing back a deficit before losing to a heartbreaking late strike, the new boys looked impressive enough to suggest a win isn-t far away at all.

And, with the Hyundai A-League 2010/11 season proving as open as it is, there-s no reason why the form book shouldn-t be ripped up against Perth Glory on Sunday afternoon. Get down to AAMI Park. Your voice can help Heart turn the Hyundai A-League ladder on its head!
