Attacking Glory confident of road win

Brisbane Roar also head into the post-season on the back of a thriller, having bounced back from a shoddy first half to beat Wellington Phoenix 4-3.

The broadcaster, which bankrolls the game and has just signed a new $346 million long term deal to cover the sport, can hardly be blamed for getting the biggest bang for its buck.

"But it's a unique one-off game ... next week could be nil-nil and go to penalties".

O'Rourke said fixturing finals was always going to be a hard business, explaining that the Brisbane Roar v Western Sydney Wanderers elimination final had to be rostered for Friday as both clubs needed to travel to Asia for Champions League matches on the Sunday.

A insane final day of the regular season - which saw Brisbane beat Wellington 4-3 and Perth Glory beat City 5-4 - settled the final places and set up some tantalising finals.

A-League boss Greg O'Rourke says it's time for the game in Australia to have the confidence to stand up and face scheduling clashes with other football codes. "It does pose a challenge between broadcast and the crowd because earlier in the Sunday evening is better for families in the crowd".

The 29-year-old, who's played 62 minutes off the bench over the last two games, believes the extra precautions will ensure he can slot back in to the XI on Sunday.

The City-Perth game replicates last year's elimination final at AAMI Park, which City won 2-0.

Asked on Tuesday if another loss to Perth and subsequent elimination would mean City's season would be rated as a failure, Fornaroli said: "Of course".

"We'll definitely try to attack them".

"It was a insane game because we both needed to win and Perth needed to score a lot of goals", the Uruguayan said.

"We needed to make sure we put on a good spectacle for our finals series but did not compromise clubs and their chance to stay alive inside the ACL", O'Rourke said.

Asked if he thought City could win the title from outside the top two - something no team has done - the Uruguayan laughed.

"We can always learn ... it doesn't matter whether you win or lose".
