City, Glory fight out 3-3 draw in A-League

NZN 27/12/2016

City coach John an 't Schip defended Fornaroli's position as his side's main penalty taker despite the costly misses.

"It's part of football ... he normally doesn't have a problem with it but today he did," van 't Schip said.

"Bruno took a lot of penalties last year (and scored), so it's part of football."

Glory coach Kenny Lowe was pleased to take a point away from the enthralling contest but fumed at what he felt were two incorrectly awarded penalties.

The second penalty was awarded on the linesman's advice after the referee had let play continue and the third came when Djulbic retaliated to a Brandan infraction.

"If the Melbourne boy has fouled first then I don't see how it can be a penalty ... that was the information that we were receiving," Lowe said.

"I don't know how the fourth official, who stood next me, can actually tell the ref what went on in the box when he's only 15 metres away."
