Wellington Phoenix and Perth Glory enhanced their play-off chances with wins while Melbourne City drew at Brisbane Roar.

Melbourne City twice hit back to earn a draw at Brisbane Roar in the A-League on Saturday.

Bradden Inman opened the scoring for the hosts after 34 minutes and again put the Queenslanders in front following Craig Noone's leveller.

But Nathaniel Atkinson fired in a wonderful, 20-yard equaliser three minutes into the second half to move Melbourne 11 points behind runaway leaders Sydney FC.

Third-placed Perth Glory registered their fifth successive win with a convincing 3-0 defeat of Adelaide United.

Joel Chianese opened the scoring with a lovely turn and finish after 25 minutes and Bruno Fornaroli doubled the Glory's advantage with a shot that deflected in off visiting skipper Michael Jakobsen.

Substitute Chris Ikonomidis rounded off the scoring by getting the better of Adelaide goalkeeper Paul Izzo and tapping into an empty net midway through the second half.

Wellington Phoenix are fourth with goals from Ulises Davila and Liberato Cacace giving them a 2-0 win over Western Sydney.
