Marco Kurz came out swinging after the 5-4 penalty shootout loss to Perth Glory (following a 3-3 draw after extra time) due to the lack of a coin toss to decide which end the penalties would be held at.

The match officials allegedly chose the Perth Glory active supporter end without the usual selection process, leading Kurz to brand the decision "disgusting".

Paul Izzo also hit-out at the decision, after a tense finish to the shootout featuring five consecutive saved spot-kicks.

The match was eventually won by Joel Chianese's penalty in front of the Glory faithful, following Liam Reddy's series of saves.
