Perth Glory deserved to win last night-s epic 3-all draw at nib Stadium according to Brisbane Roar coach Ange Postecoglou.
“Perth Glory got robbed to be honest," declared Postecoglou at his media conference.
"They deserved to win the game today. We were very, very ordinary and it would have been an injustice if we got anything more than a point out of it."
In a classic game, the Glory led 2-nil mid-way through the first half producing an attacking and exciting style of football that had the crowd in a frenzy.
"I thought the boys were outstanding tonight," declared Perth Glory Ian Ferguson.
"In football terms, that's the best I've seen them.
"I thought they took the game to Brisbane and I thought they played really well.
"To go 3-2 down, I think it showed a bit of character as well for the boys ... to keep going."
"They showed it (that character) last week and showed it again this week so the most pleasing thing is obviously still going on to create chances and obviously get the penalty."
The Glory will now hit the road for three games starting with Sunday-s against Wellington followed by matches in Melbourne (Heart) and Sydney.
In-form striker Billy Mehmet will be assessed by the Glory-s medical staff this morning, after he was substituted in the 82nd minute with a calf injury.
Marquee man Shane Smeltz and defender Bas van den Brink will also have to prove their fitness today after missing last night-s game.
The squad will fly to Wellington on Friday morning via Sydney.
