Roar coach expects McKay to be poached

Brisbane's penthouse placing on the A-League ladder should be enough to convince Ange Postecoglou his coaching formula is hugely successful.

But he may require further reinforcements if in-form Socceroos midfielder Matt McKay is poached by an overseas club.

McKay's impressive performances with the Socceroos, who meet Japan in the Asian Cup final in Doha on Sunday morning, has prepared Postecoglou for his skipper's likely departure.

The Roar mentor said he would accept it as a coaching compliment if McKay realised a dream to play overseas on a huge contract on the back of his superb efforts in the Asian Cup.

"It's fantastic for our club to be represented on the national stage like that," Postecoglou said.

"That's a fact of life for us (McKay being poached).

"The better we do the more our players will get that attention.

"That's fine I'm totally comfortable with that.

"Letting players move on doesn't have to be a negative thing, they are going on to bigger and better things and that is acknowledgment of the work we are doing here."

The Roar are one win from sealing the minor premiership following their 2-0 victory over a dogged Wellington Phoenix on Wednesday at Skilled Park.

Both coaches vented their disappointment at the unevenness and poor quality of the Skilled Park pitch which has numerous dirt patches making it difficult for ball control and precision passing.

Wellington captain Andrew Durante said the surface was below A-League standard and had deteriorated since they last played there last month against Gold Coast United.

"It's got worse," Durante said.

"The last time there was a bit more grass on it, this time there is more dirt and it's gone downhill since the last time we played.

"It bobbles around. You play a flat ball and it starts bouncing up around your feet and you can't play one touch football."

Wellington employed heavy defensive tactics against the Roar and a draw was on the cards before James Meyer pulled off a double in the final 10 minutes.

Phoenix's defensive flooding tactics were enough to convince coach Ricki Herbert that's the way to beat the Roar which have equalled the Australian record of 22 straight matches without defeat.

"They couldn't get through (our defence)," Herbert said.

"They're a side that if you deny them space they struggle and we saw that."
