The ball eventually found its way into the net off Victory midfielder Mark Milligan.

Young Glory goalkeeper Jack Duncan again performed well, pulling off a fine save from Rogicís strike on the half hour mark.

But Milligan made amends for his inadvertent own goal just ten minutes later.

After Troisi had been pulled back in the box, Milligan converted from the penalty spot to level the scores in his 100th A-League match.

Perth failed to do enough to force a win in the second half, and it was left to Archie Thompson to find a winner for his side.

Thompson remains one of the finest natural finishers in the A-League, and he made no mistake to seal all three points for the Melbourne giant.

As for Perth Glory, they remain bottom of the table.
