|1||Wellington Phoenix FC||42|
Wellington Phoenix leapfrogged Perth Glory and went top of the A-League standings for the first time in their history with a 2-1 win in Western Australia.
Roy Krishna put the New Zealanders ahead in the 23rd minute but Glory cancelled out the lead within six minutes as Ruben Zadkovich drew them level.
However, Phoenix were not to be denied and Krishna's ninth league goal of the season sealed a sixth away success for his side to leave them two clear of Glory and Melbourne Victory, who were 3-0 winners...
Wellington left it late to see off Adelaide, substitute Joel Griffiths opening the scoring in the 79th minute and Nathan Burns adding a second three minutes later, but the win moves them to within a point of Perth.
That is because the pacesetters had to settle for a fifth draw in their last six matches as their winless streak stretched...
Nathan Burns scored the winner as Wellington Phoenix stopped Melbourne Victory going top of the A-League with a 3-2 win.
Victory would have gone ahead of Perth on goal difference with a win, and they were on their way when Scott Galloway (34) put them ahead.
Roly Bonevacia levelled (42) but Kosta Barbarouses restored the home side's lead nine minutes after the break.
But Michael Boxall equalised (68) and then Burns won it with 13 minutes left.
