Perth Glory interim head coach Ian Ferguson wants the FFA to review the standard of referring following a controversial draw to the Central Coast Mariners. Here are the post match comments from both teams.

Perth Glory interim head coach Ian Ferguson:

"I'm sick for the boys, the effort they put in and the commitment they gave us today was fantastic.

"Where the referees go I don't know. The FFA will obviously have to try and do something because it's not just a one-off, it's week after week and it's costing us points."

"I'm sick and tired of the inconsistency of these referees. Something's got to be done.

"This is our livelihood and we're playing for three points here and unfortunately we've lost two points with five minutes to go because I thought it was a blatant free-kick for us.

"Unfortunately it doesn't go our way. I think some of the decisions today were dreadful."

Ferguson on the young kids:

"I thought the young kids came in today and did a fantastic job," he said. "They played well and I thought they controlled the game for long spells."

Perth Glory midfielder Steven McGarry:

"I don't think the referees are consistent," he said. "I don't know what I can and can't say, but it was definitely a free-kick.

"When he looks at the replay again the referee will know he's made a terrible decision."

Central Coast Mariners coach Graham Arnold:

"Overall Glory were probably the better side tonight but we will take a point.

"You have to give full credit to the Glory tonight, they had the bye last week, Fergie (Perth coach Ian Ferguson) has obviously freshened them up and they came out with the intention of showing us that they are much better than what they were when we played them in Sydney.

"They did very well in midfield tonight, they shut down Mustafa Amini and Rostyn Griffiths as well.

"Our midfield has done exceptionally well this year with (Michael) McGlinchey, (Oliver) Bozanic and Rostyn, and I thought they did a very good job on them, they shut us down and made it very difficult to play."
