Perth Glory interim head coach Ian Ferguson is pleased with his squad after ending a tough two game road trip undefeated against two of the A-leagues best sides.

Here is the post game reaction following Friday night's 1-1 draw against Brisbane Roar.

Perth Glory interim head coach Ian Ferguson:

"We played exceptionally well in the first half and Brisbane we knew would come out in the second half and put us under pressure and that's exactly the way it turned out.

"When you play the top teams, first (Brisbane) and fourth (Gold Coast), and you get points for those away trips, it's very pleasing.

"For me the Roar are by far the best team in the A-League and the best team I've seen in Australia. Their movement is very hard to control; they play in little triangles which is very difficult, but we showed the boys this morning and during the week the way they play, where to close them down and so on.

"They're very difficult to stop, but it's 11 versus 11 out there and anything can happen. Bottom can beat top in this league. It was pleasing to see we frustrated them a bit."

Brisbane Roar coach Ange Postecoglou:

"We may have expected things to happen and not with the intention of making it happen.

"It wasn't a great start to the game. It was disappointing. We haven't done that too often.

"They were well organised and worked really hard, defensively they did a good job and they were always threatening on attack.

"Tonight was a not a team performance that reflected how we've been going.''
