Commentary

FULL TIME - It was end to end action in the second half and somehow there weren't any goals scored. An entertaining match comes to an end with both sides sharing the spoils with a 1-1 final scoreline. The result keeps Perth fifth on 33 points but they still have the Brisbane Roar and Melbourne City - the teams directly above them - to play at home in their final two matches. Their fate in terms of a top four spot could be in their hands if results go their way this weekend.
