Thwaite sees light at the end of the tunnel

PERTH Glory will not look back on 2013 with much joy.

The club sacked two coaches - Ian Ferguson and his replacement Alistair Edwards - and goes into the final match of the year with just seven wins from 24 matches.

But central defender Michael Thwaite (pictured) says he can see plenty of light at the end of the tunnel, re-signing yesterday for two more years.

"I have great faith in this playing group - we should be aiming to finish the season as a top four side," Thwaite, who has 13 Socceroos caps to his credit," said.

Sitting third last on the table, the Glory will need to start winning soon to achieve that goal.

It will have the chance to do that, and at least end the year in positive fashion, when it takes on the Mariners in Gosford tonight.

Central Coast has added Brent Griffiths and Anthony Caceres to the squad that lost 2-0 to Western Sydney last week.
