The Brisbane Roar coach has sent an ominous warning to the rest of the A-League after his side posted a brilliant win away from home over Melbourne Victory

Brisbane Roar coach Mike Mulvey declared his team are 'on a mission' after dismantling Melbourne Victory 3-0 at AAMI Park on Saturday night.
 
Goals to Liam Miller, Matt McKay and Dimitri Petratos earned the A-League leaders their first win in Melbourne in nine attempts. 

Mulvey was delighted with the way his players put Victory to the sword as well as the quality of football on display. 

"We put on a very good performance in Sydney last week and we backed it up tonight," Mulvey said. 

"That's always the aim, you set the bar and you have got to keep to it. 

"I'm extremely happy with the players tonight because they were very good and training was excellent during the week so things are going along quite nicely at the moment. 

"I wasn't looking at the clock or wondering when full-time was – I was just enjoying us play. 

"We were making a very good team chase, chase and chase and that is very difficult to do.
 
"That tells you about the quality of our football at times tonight." 

With the prolific Besart Berisha likely to return from injury next week, Mulvey believes the side can go from strength to strength if they keep putting in the hard yards at training. 

"We turn up for the next training session and keep doing what we have been doing," he said. 

"We are on a mission – we are not looking for overnight success, we're looking for long-term success."

Meanwhile, Victory coach Kevin Muscat put his whole squad on notice after being concerned at how they reacted to going behind against the A-League leaders. 
 
"Regardless of what was at stake, it just simply wasn't good enough," Muscat said. 
 
"I thought we started really well, created a good chance and then something I haven't seen in a very long time (happened); we conceded a goal and just seemed to crumble. 

"I thought the first 20-25 minutes we gave as good as we got but from there on in, we got completely dominated. 

"All of us are going to have to look in the mirror and take responsibility for ourselves and analyse our own performances individually and bounce back next week."
