Australian Football: Montgomery rues missed chances

Central Coast Mariners coach Nick Montgomery was left to rue a host of missed chances as Perth Glory scored a last-gap goal to snatch a point on Sunday.

The Mariners are priced at 1/1 to finish in the top six of the A-League this season but for the second consecutive game have dropped crucial points at the death.

Late fightbacks hurt

The Mariners had been leading Macarthur 3-2 earlier in the week before the Bulls scored a last-minute goal to earn a share of the points and deny Montgomery's men all three.

And they dropped another two points against Glory when conceding in the 93rd minute.

Cummings to grasp Mariners chance

It remains to be seen whether the four points they have dropped will come back to haunt them at the end of the campaign but Montgomery says they have to drop the bad habit as soon as possible.

Deja Vu strikes

"Just really disappointed with the equaliser we conceded and again, deja vu, two points dropped. The boys are hurting in there, but that's football," coach Nick Montgomery said.

"Obviously we've got a really young team and also not putting chances away.

"If you put the chances away, you can probably concede that goal in the last minute and you still win the game but for that to be an equaliser that obviously takes away two points is very disappointing."

New signing Jason Cummings had given the Mariners the lead with a tidy finish following good work from Marco Urena in the 58th minute.

But they could not hang on and were made to pay for missed chances when Daniel Stynes fired home the equaliser from inside the area.
