    FULL TIME -  Melbourne Victory 2 (Traore 36" Finkler 89") defeated Perth Glory 0

    Melbourne Victory ground out a vital 2-0 win in front of 17,008 fans at AAMI Park on Friday night.

    Adama Traore's wonder strike settled the crowd's frustrations after Victory dominated the first half, before a Perth fightback was thwarted by Gui Finkler's clever one-two move with James Troisi at the death.

    Perth, missing a number of key players, were good value in the second half as they chased the game, but showed little initiative when scores were level.

    Victory climbs to 15 points, third for now with the rest of the round still to be played.

    Perth (12) remains seventh and could fall further off finals pace with unfavourable results.

    FULL TIME -  MV 2 (Traore 36" Finkler 89") PG 0

    All over at AAMI Park

    90+2 -  MV 2 (Traore 36" Finkler 89") PG 0

    Victory on the attack again...Broxham dashed up from right back to put a cross through the area but there was no goal-bound touch!


    90+1 -  MV 2 (Traore 36" Finkler 89") PG 0

    Victory winding some time off the clock by subbing Nichols off and Andrew Nabbout on.

    89.00 -  MV 2 (Traore 36" Finkler 89") PG 0

    GOAL! Finkler finishes it this time!

    Finkler worked his way into the penalty area through the centre-left, beating one man before playing a clever one-two with Troisi.

    Troisi's pass was pefectly weighted for Finkler to hit his shot past Vukovic for the sealer!

    Victory made heavy weather of it but the three points are safe now!

    And there will be only three minutes of stoppage time to end this one.

    88.30 -  MV 1 (Traore 36") PG 0

    Finkler...mis-hits a volley into the hands of Vukovic!

    Barbarouses passed to Broxham who was overlapping on the right...Broxham hit a low cross into the area where Finkler's first touch caused the ball to bobble up at a volley height...he jumped in the air though and his flying kick didn't have the power to pass Vukovic!

    87.00 -  MV 1 (Traore 36") PG 0

    Perth bringing on Daniel De Silva.

    It's the sore Harold who makes way. He did look ready to continue but Perth won't take the risk.

    That delay should buy them some stoppage time too.

    86.00 -  MV 1 (Traore 36") PG 0

    Tonight's crowd is 17,008.

    Chris Harold is down and waiting for treatment from the physio for a foot injury.

    84.15 -  MV 1 (Traore 36") PG 0

    McGarry gets a yellow for clattering Barbarouses as the Victory player tried to take the ball out of his defensive half.

    84.00 -  MV 1 (Traore 36") PG 0

    The game is opening up as Perth now really starts to press for an equaliser.

    Nichols heads away a corner from the six-yard area.

    Perth retains possession.

    80.30 -  MV 1 (Traore 36") PG 0
    Top drawer save from Coe!
    Victory cleared a corner but only as far as Maclaren at the top of the area...Maclaren hit a volleyed shot to the top left corner but Coe flew through the air to parry it away!

    79.00 - MV 1 (Traore 36") PG 0
    Perth on the attack again and the ball spills into the penalty area.
    Edwards blazes over though! A bad miss!

    76.00 - MV 1 (Traore 36") PG 0
    Geria is sore and walks off with the aid of the physio...Rashid Mahazi is his replacement.

    71.30 - MV 1 (Traore 36") PG 0
    Nagai runs solo down the left and tries his luck from a tight angle...Coe gets the last touch as it goes out for a corner.

    McGarry puts the corner high over the pack of players waiting in the penalty area and out for a goal kick.

    Victory makes its first substitution of the night with Connor Pain coming off and Gui Finkler coming on.

    70.30 - MV 1 (Traore 36") PG 0
    Cross from the right by Barbarouses finds Nichols but his shot is straight at Vukovic who holds the ball!

    69.00 - MV 1 (Traore 36") PG 0
    Maclaren breaks through Victory's high line but his shot on the run from the top of the area is over the bar.

    67.00 - MV 1 (Traore 36") PG 0
    Nagai tries his luck from outside the area but sprays the shot high and wide across the face of goal.

     

    64.00 - MV 1 (Traore 36") PG 0
    Barbarouses unleashes a shot from the top of the area but it's deflected out for a corner!

    Glory makes the first sub of the game with Ndumba Makeche coming off and Cameron Edwards on.

    62.00 - MV 1 (Traore 36") PG 0

    The crowd is going wild begging Victory players to shoot...but they won't! It keeps passing around the top of the penalty area without the finishing touch.

    Woodcock gets himself a yellow card for a hard foul on Pain, which was called play on.

    60.00 - MV 1 (Traore 36") PG 0

    Barbarouses goes close from an impossible angle!

    He danced around Clisby on the right byline and then tried his luck with Vukovic standing on the near post...it flashed across the face and was put behind for a corner.

    Glory clears the corner.

    59.00 - MV 1 (Traore 36") PG 0

    Barbarouses runs into the area on the right but Ryan Edwards takes the ball off his feet.

    57.30 - MV 1 (Traore 36") PG 0

    Through ball for Perth and a chance for Maclaren running with Contreras!

    Contreras was the last man and took the risk with a sliding challenge...but he timed it to perfection and knocked the ball away!

    Perth continue to press but Clisby's shot from 5m outside the area is deflected out for a throw.

    53.45- MV 1 (Traore 36") PG 0

    Perth in possession around the penalty area...a dangerous ball went into the area but was over the head of an unmarked Makeche...he didn't have a play on it for a header! But still some initiative being shown by the Glory.

    53.00 - MV 1 (Traore 36") PG 0

    There's a warm round of applause for Ange Postecoglou as the Socceroos boss is shown on the video screen.

    52.00 - MV 1 (Traore 36") PG 0

    Harold finds Maclaren with a pass through the middle and the striker takes a nice turn to face goal!

    But Maclaren's shot is not well hit, dragged across the face of goal and tamely out for a goal kick.

    49.00 - MV 1 (Traore 36") PG 0

    Victory wins a corner but Clisby clears it off the near post unchallenged.

    There were no subs at half time and for now Perth is still happy to sit in their defensive half rather than press any further up the park.

    KICK-OFF - MV 1 (Traore 36") Perth 0

    Players are back for the second half. What we can tell you is that Victory's North Terrace has not returned...the corner of the ground they were in is now empty.

    Enough about what's going on in the stands though, there's three vital points up for grabs as Melbourne starts the second half a goal to the good.

    HALF TIME - MV 1 (Traore 36") Perth 0

    Adama Trarore's goal aside, it was a half that reached no great heights as Melbourne dictated the tempo and got the reward.


    44.00 - MV 1 (Traore 36") Perth 0

    One minute of stoppage time to end the first half.

    Perth have pushed up a little, pressing to just inside the Victory defensive half when Melbourne has possession.

    44.00 - MV 1 (Traore 36") Perth 0

    The 'caged animals' banner is no longer being shown at the North End but now the South End is chanting "sack the board" and "Robson out".

    It's quiet enough around the rest of the stadium for it to be heard clearly.


    41.45 - MV 1 (Traore 36") Perth 0

    Leijer turns a cross from Davies over his own bar for a corner.

    Perth with the chance to construct a set piece...taken by Woodcock.

    It lands in the six-yard area but it's all Victory and hoofed clear.

    41.00 - MV 1 (Traore 36") Perth 0

    Pain cuts in from the right flank and shoots on his left foot but it's straight at Vukovic, who holds the ball.

    39.00 - MV 0 PG 0

    Banner in the more-or-less silent North Terrace (Swan St End)..."We are not caged animals".

    For those of you watching on TV, all the chanting is coming from the "South End" who are at the Yarra End of the ground.

    37.30 - MV 1 (Traore 36") PG 0

    Victory attacking down the left through Pain...he's bowled over by Davies who gets Perth's first yellow card of the game.

    36.40 - MV 1 (Traore 36") PG 0

    GOLAZO! Adama Traore!

    What a strike!

    The crowd was getting angry again as Victory passed around the area...pass after pass...eventually the ball worked its way to the left where Traore loaded up on the left foot and let rip from just outside the corner of the box.

    Vukovic got a hand on it but only succeeded in tipping the ball into the top left corner of his goal!

    That will settle the home fans! And maybe draw Perth Glory out of their shell too.

    No sitting on the fence from Perth Glory's official account...

     

    34.00 - MV 0 PG 0

    Geria runs down the right into the area...pulls a cutback through the area and it misses everyone! Barbarouses back-tracks to shoot but he scoops it high over the bar!

    33.00 - MV 0 PG 0

    Clisby gets first head to the corner and gets it to Barbarouses...the Kiwi advances into the area...did he catch an elbow from Maclaren!? The referee says no! Barbarouses goes to ground and the crowd is really angry now!

    31.30 - MV 0 PG 0

    Barbarouses wins a corner on the right hand side...and takes it himself.

    Vukovic rose highest in the penalty area to claim the ball.

    Playing out from teh back Thwaite is caught in possession by Nichols!

    He plays a one-two with Pain and then wins another corner after Thwaite got back to defend.

    30.00 - MV 0 PG 0

    Harold gets free on the right flank with a rare forward foray for Perth...but he balloons his cross over the penalty area.

    28.00 - MV 0 PG 0

    Harold crashes in on Milligan with a sliding challenge near the half way line. It's a foul but the crowd is angry that there's no card.

    Replays suggest that it may have been the right call to keep the cards in the pocket, but an already frustrated home crowd is getting edgy.

    26.00 - MV 0 PG 0

    A probing run down the right from Barbarouses but his cross is blocked straight out for a throw.

    Milligan wins the ball back in midfield...a loose first touch from Troisi allows Perth to escape.

    Nagai and Broxham collide in a 50-50...Broxham took a hit to the face and it requires a break in play but the Victory midfielder is fit to continue.

     

    22.00 - MV 0 PG 0

    Troisi stings the hands of Vukovic with a long shot! The ball is bundled out for a corner...headed away by McGarry as far as Broxham...and his shot is high and over the bar.

     

    20.00 - MV 0 PG 0

    Perth are happy to stand in their defensive half and let Victory hold possession around the half way line.

    The game is being played almost exclusively in Victory's attacking half.

    17.00 - MV 0 PG 0

    Victory now enjoying some time on the ball...working it down the right.

    Barbarouses crosses the ball from the right along the ground to Nichols who shoots! But it's straight at Vukovic who holds the shot.

    Perth made some early forward thrusts but it's all-out defence right now as Melbourne starts to turn up the heat.

    15.00 - MV 0 PG 0

    Nichols running down the right tries to catch out Vukovic at his near post but the Perth 'keeper makes the save.

    Nichols tries again from slightly off to the right, this time to the opposite top corner, but it goes high and wide! Not by much though and the crowd sounds its appreciation.

    14.00 - MV 0 PG 0

    Corner for Victory taken by Troisi...to the back post...Contreras flew high but his header is over the bar!

    Good contact but the defender was leaping over a big pack of players and could not keep his header down.

    11.15 - MV 0 PG 0

    Harold fouls Traore about 15m from the top of the penalty area, slightly to the left.

    Victory passes up a shooting chance with a quick take...but it breaks down and the ball spills all the way back to Geria at half way.

    Victory attacks down the right but Nagai does enough to close down Nichols and take the ball.

    10.30 - MV 0 PG 0

    Troisi hits a through ball from the left for Nichols in the middle but it's easy pickings for Clisby who knocks away a high clearance.

    8.30 - MV 0 PG 0

    First yellow card of the game as Contreras legs Maclaren inside Victory's defensive half.

    Maclaren had the defender beaten and Contreras' ungainly backwards leg thrust may have only made slight contact but was enough to get the attention of referee Peter Green.

    7.30 - MV 0 PG 0

    Woodcock slips a through ball for Maclaren but Contreras is able to intercept and make a back-pass to Coe.

     

    5.30 - MV 0 PG 0

    Perth have hugged the left flank so far, with Ryo Nagai the main outlet.

    Victory goes over to its own left flank for a counter attack through Pain...he wins a corner off Davies.

    3.15 - MV 0 PG 0
    Maclaren showed some skill to bring down a high ball at the top of the penalty area but his ambitious left-foot volley went high over the bar. Perth's first chance of the evening.

    2.30 - MV 0 PG 0
    Pain teed the ball up for Milligan to shoot from the top right corner of the penalty area but it was blocked almost straight off the boot

    1.30 - MV 0 PG 0
    Troisi's run down the right left young Woodcock stumbling over but the cross into the box was met by three Perth players for an easy clearance

    KICK-OFF - MV 0 PG 0
    Perth start the match attacking the Yarra End while Melbourne Victory will attack the Swan St End.

    Welcome to tonight's live blog of A-League Round 10, Melbourne Victory vs Perth Glory from AAMI Park.

    Melbourne Victory's first AAMI Park game of the season ended in a surprise loss to Newcastle last week, leaving the home team in desperate need of three points tonight.

    Perth arrives without stars Shane Smeltz, William Gallas or Sidnei Sciola, leaving the club's youngsters and lesser lights to do battle tonight.
