Roar win but coach not satisfied

Some people are hard to please - and then there's Brisbane Roar coach Ange Postecoglou.

In a pulsating A-League match that opened with a Besart Berisha goal 43 seconds after kick-off, the Roar held out a Harry Kewell-inspired Melbourne Victory 3-2 at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday night to keep their title defence on track with a third straight win.

Yet the hard-marking Postecoglou still couldn't crack a smile.

"Maybe I am a grumpy old bastard," Postecoglou said.

"I am never satisfied.

"We didn't look comfortable in possession all night but credit to the Victory.

"I want us to, not play better, but play our game.

"There were times that we just didn't look in control of the game. I would rather we were."

But Postecoglou later conceded: "When you look at it we have three wins in a row and a bit of momentum which is good."

Postecoglou appeared to have no complaints when he was brought to his feet along with the majority of the 18,523-strong crowd as Berisha beat four defenders to open the scoring in the opening minute.

And Berisha had his second by the 32nd minute before an Henrique penalty extended the lead to 3-1 at halftime against a rattled Victory.

However, Kewell's second goal in the 50th minute off an uncharacteristic Thomas Broich mistake ensured a tense finish for the hosts.

Berisha's brace boosted his season goal tally to 15, eclipsing the club record previously held by Sergio van Dijk (13).

He now has Shane Smeltz's A-League season record of 19 in his sights with five matches remaining.

As serious as Postecoglou looked post-match, the poker-faced mentor could still manage a joke when the topic inevitably turned to Berisha.

Postecoglou appeared to cheekily reference the fiery Berisha's recent post-match clash with Sydney FC defender Pascal Bosschaart that earned the Roar marksman a one-match ban while praising the recently re-signed striker.

"There aren't too many people who score that many goals anywhere in the world - they are prized possessions," he said.

"So he was an important signing for us.

"Negotiations took a while. At one point when he got testy he threatened to take me out to the car park but we settled our differences."

Sitting second, the Roar appear to be regaining their championship mojo but they still trail leader Central Coast by five points after the Mariners' 2-0 win over Wellington on Saturday.

Veteran Massimo Murdocca - who played a record 132nd match for the Roar on Saturday night - believed Brisbane simply had to keep winning to be any chance of securing the minor premiership.

"Destiny is in their (Mariners') hands and second spot is in ours," he said.

Meanwhile, Postecoglou played down a shoulder complaint to Broich which forced the German playmaker to be benched in the 50th minute.
