Melbourne Victory coach Mehmet Durakovic believes it's only a matter of time before his team start winning, after settling for a tough 2-2 draw against Perth Glory on Sunday.

Carlos Hernandez and Danny Allsopp netted for Victory against a 10-man Glory, but the visitors fought back and staged a remarkable comeback with goals from Andrezinho and Shane Smeltz earning them a point.

But, despite giving up a two-goal lead, Durakovic said he was confident the wins would start coming soon enough.

"Unfortunately, things aren't going our way at the moment and that's the honest truth. We're a big club and we need to be getting points at home," he said.

"I'm disappointed, like the players and the fans out there. It's a big club and we need to be right up there."

"I'm really positive that once we get all the players back and we get a bit of luck, we'll start getting results."

The draw extended Victory's unbeaten run to five matches and helped them move into seventh ahead of a clash against bottom-placed Gold Coast United.

Victory produced a decent display without regular starters Harry Kewell and Grant Brebner through injury and Matthew Foschini because of suspension and Olyroo duty.

Allsopp, who netted his first goal of the season, said they had fought hard throughout the encounter.

"When we're not playing as well as what we want to be it might appear that we look flat - when maybe it's more people are looking for a performance to start," he said.

"I don't think you feel flat, I think maybe it's the way it is."

The array of attacking talent at Durakovic's disposal has seen fierce competition for spots with Allsopp, Archie Thompson, Kewell and Jean Carlos Solorzano fighting for a position up front.

Allsopp said the battle for a starting berth was a positive factor for Victory.

"Reality is, we haven't had a great start to the season so everyone's going to be looking for reasons," he said.

"A lot of teams in the world have got a lot of good squads and they have to battle for places, so it's part of life as a professional player and you've got to deal with it as well as you can."
