Glory snatch point after late equaliser

Nick D'Agostino has headed home a stunning late equaliser to secure Perth Glory a 2-2 draw with Melbourne Victory.


Perth were required to come from behind following both Victory goals, a well taken free kick by Bruno Fornaroli in first half stoppage time squared the scoreline up at the main break followed by the amazing effort from D'Agostino.


Chris Ikonomidis could be set for another stint on the sidelines after leaving the field with a knee injury in the first half.


The 24-year-old return just this game after missing two weeks with another knee complaint following a heavy tackle on January 11 against Adelaide United.


Ikonomidis will have scans to determine the next course of action.


Coach Tony Popovic was delighted to take a point away from the match.


"It wasn't a great day for us today, so to come away with a point was pleasing." Popovic said post-match.


"Defensively we were poor today, I felt. It's something that we've been really good at as a team on this great run that we've been on, but today was not a good day defensively for us.


"When that happens and you have a team that is dangerous and has some very good footballers in the front third, in transition you can get caught and we got caught twice in transition and we didn't deal very well with the first and second balls today.


"So for the players to show the resilience to still get a point is great credit to them."
