Herbert says Victory have their shortcomings

4:38 pm on 5 January 2013

The Australian A league's most capped football coach says the Melbourne Victory have their weaknesses.

Ricki Herbert's Phoenix, who he'll guide for the 152nd time tonight in Melbourne, and the Victory, both come off New Year's Day losses, but for the fourth placed Melbourne that was just their second loss in 10 matches.

Yet Herbert says while the Victory have spent and recruited heavily this season they've not always been convincing and at times looked vulnerable.
