Australian Football: Kisnorbo looks to draw positives

Melbourne City head coach Patrick Kisnorbo insists he and his players will just "move on" from a disappointing 2-2 draw with Perth Glory.

Goals from Florin Berenguer and Mat Leckie inside the opening half-hour appeared to have City well on the way to a victory, only for the visitors to hit back quickly through Bruno Fornaroli and then equalise ten minutes into the second half thanks to Callum Timmins' strike.

That left Kisnorbo slightly disappointed, despite City moving to the head of the A-League standing and now 15/8 to retain their Premiership crown.

Kisnorbo - That's football

He told his club's official website: "That's football sometimes. I thought we were great and in those (Glory) goals, we had a couple of lapses in concentration and got punished.

"It's just one of those things that we need to improve on, but we'll take positives out of the game and move on."

French midfielder Berenguer netted the opener against Perth a day after agreeing a new contract which will see him remain with City for next season.

The 32-year-old former Dijon and Sochaux schemer moved to Australia in September 2018 and has since scored seven goals in 84 in all competitions, helping City to the A-League title last season.

City delighted to keep Berenguer

Director of football Michael Petrillo was delighted with the completion of an agreement with Berenguer, saying: "Florin has worked hard to become a very important player in our squad. It's great to see him in career-best form this season.

"He is one of the most technically gifted players in the league and loves to play our style of football.

"Florin is a Premiership and Championship winning player and his experience and his winning mentality give us an edge on the pitch."
