Commentary

FULL TIME - It was a dominant performance by the Western Sydney Wanderers who were far too good for Wellington recording a 4-0 win. That puts Western Sydney into sixth position whilst for Wellington it's back to the drawing board after two consecutive 4-0 defeats. 
90' + 3' Paracki gives the ball away carelessly with Wellington looking for a fifth goal. Santalab shoots but it takes a deflection and drifts wide. 
90' + 2' Sanatalab with a great ball through to Riera but Fox slides in to cut out the opportunity. 
90' There will be four minutes of stoppage time to be played. 
89' Risdon sends it into the box for Santalab who tries the spectacular bicycle kick, but he only results in giving away the free kick to Wellington. 
86' Llorente curls in the cross and this time Italiano takes it with authority. 
84' Baccus tries to get a piece of the goal scoring action but his effort from inside the box is well over.

M. Thwaite
Goal
Western Sydney Wanderers
63' GOAL WANDERERS - The second half hoodoo appears to be over! Carrusca sends the corner in towards Michael Thwaite who meets it with a header that makes great connection and Italiano could not get near it. Wanderers lead 2-0.

47' Lustica lays it off for Carrusca who shoots over.  
45' The second half is underway. 
HALF TIME - The Western Sydney Wanderers have been dominant in the first half but their lead at the break should be higher than their 1-0 advantage at the break. 
45' + 2' Wellington have the late corner and it's found Kaluderovic at the far post all by himself. But the connection with the ball was all wrong and it misses badly.

24' A mix up between McGlinchey and Ridenton gifts possession back to the Wanderers but it's Ridenton who wins the ball back. 
22' Ikonomidis with a chance inside the box and he surely didn't realise how much time he had on his hands because he hurried the shot making the save an easy job for Italiano. 
20' Wellington need to change something here because the Wanderers are controlling the game at the moment.
