Final thoughts

Maclaren meets your needs it’s just a point gained, but it’s also two lost given the time period City had another man. They played some nice football in parts, but lacked the nous to collapse a resolute Victory defence as well as a innovative to choose the back within the net. Once they did find a well beyond Thomas in goal, on two occasions, these people were denied by way of the woodwork. It wasn’t to remain their night. Warren Joyce may be trying to be indifferent to the noise over his job, even so it will get higher so next result. For Victory, you have to allow them to have credit for fighting back after Neidermeier’s moment of madness, but some extent surely isn’t enough to enable them to sustain quite a job with the premiers’ plate. Indeed, the important winners tonight are Perth Glory, who now seem a sure-fire bet to accomplish top.

That’s all from me. Let’s file you away under “forgettable derbies”. Until when.
