Brisbane Roar overcame Besart Berisha's first-half red card to secure a 0-0 draw against Perth Glory in Friday night's A-League clash at nib Stadium.

Berisha was shown his second yellow card in the 31st minute when he raised his boot dangerously before clattering into Glory defender Michael Thwaite.

Circumstances were similar, and Thwaite again the victim, when Berisha copped his first yellow in the first minute of the match.

Despite going down to 10 men, Brisbane created the better opportunities in the match and were unlucky not to secure all three points.

The result put Brisbane five points clear on top of the table, although that gap will be narrowed to just two if Western Sydney can beat Adelaide on Sunday.

Perth, who entered the match on a two-game winning streak, stay fifth.

The 11,026 crowd roared in pleasure when the red card was shown to Berisha.

The feisty Albanian is enemy No.1 among Glory fans after he won a controversial penalty in Brisbane's 2-1 grand final win over Perth in 2012.

He was in the thick of the action throughout his brief spell on Friday night but his dismissal left the Roar a man short for the second week running.

In last week's 2-1 loss to Adelaide, defender Diogo Ferreira was sent off in the 41st minute.

Chances were few in the first half, but the Roar almost stole the lead on the stroke of half-time when Jack Hingert's 29-metre free kick grazed the base of the upright and bounced away.

Henrique had a golden chance in the 46th minute when a beautiful through ball gave him a clear run on goal.

But with only goalkeeper Danny Vukovic to beat, Henrique sprayed his shot high.

Brisbane encountered a few nervy moments in the final 10 minutes of the match, but they managed to hold on to secure what could end up being a valuable point in the race for the minor premiership.

Star Roar midfielder Thomas Broich made it through the entire 90 minutes despite carrying a corked thigh while Glory's international marquee William Gallas played out the first half in his first game back from a calf injury.

  • A remarkable game.
    Mulvey has taken these guys to a new level when it seemed they were great anyway.

    Is Barisha becoming a liability?
    I'm not sure.
    To me it seemed the ref had an agenda with him.
    His first card was for a hard but innocuous challenge and fair enough his second was reckless.
    I know refs have off days and I know their job is hard but this guy needs to take stock and get back to basics as quite frankly he at times seemed not to know what he was doing.

    Burns is often gracious in defeat and he was gracious after the draw but that doesn't hide the fact he's the A-leagues dirtiest player.
    Berisha is a pussy cat compared to Burns.

    Top performance from the Roar lads - all of them could have been man of the match.

    A 0-0 that kept me on edge right to the last second - superb entertainment!
