REST sensor utf8 problem

I am trying to configure a REST sensor for glances, (GPU temp) which isn’t part of the integration yet.

  - platform: rest
    name: "gpu0_temp"
    resource: http://glancesserver:61208/api/3/gpu/gpu_id/0
    method: GET
      Content-Type: application/json
    value_template: '{{ value_json[0].temperature }}'

however it never sets up correctly with this error.

2020-11-21 22:26:02 ERROR (MainThread) [homeassistant.components.sensor] Error while setting up rest platform for sensor
Traceback (most recent call last):

    (result, consumed) = self._buffer_decode(data, self.errors, final)
UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0x9c in position 1: invalid start byte

however crul -v gives me this output

As work around I am getting this in node-red and parsing the JSON response, I think I am missing some header I cant seem to figure it out… any help!?

Figured it out …

needed to add for glances v3
