Wanderers drop first A-League points

  Wanderers drop first A-League points Western Sydney Wanderers have dropped their first A-League points of the season but have returned to the top of the table with a 0-0 draw at home to Brisbane.Like Sydney last week, winless Roar would have left Bankwest Stadium wondering how they failed to score and have just one goal to show from three games. .

Wanderers fans celebrate a home victory. For now at least, they move up into seventh and within goal difference of a play-off spot, while the revived Jets slip A change of scenery was seemingly all it took for the frustrated Wanderers , who found more success further west of their fruitless temporary home

Western United's impressive start to life in the A-League has continued with a 2-1 win over Western Sydney Wanderers at Geelong's GMHBA Stadium, the club's first triumph at their home ground.

Mitchell Duke's early Wanderers goal was quickly followed by a rare Andrew Durante strike, the United defender and former Wellington Phoenix captain capitalising on poor defending at a corner to equalise.

United's winner came from starting debutant Kwabena Appiah-Kubi, his sharpness in the box in the 58th minute providing Mark Rudan's side with a deserved lead on the night in front of 4588 fans.

W-League can replace Kerr factor: Matildas

The 2012–13 Western Sydney Wanderers FC season was the club's inaugural season since its establishment in 2012. The club participated in the A-League for the first time, winning the competition and finishing as runner-up in the 2013 A-League Grand Final.

That happened when Alessandro Diamanti smashed a shot-come-cross into the area, with Appiah-Kubi using a brilliant first touch to give himself space off the defender and then slot home the goal.

Besart Berisha was left out of the United starting 11, the official line from the club being that the 34-year-old was rested. He was replaced by Appiah-Kubi as striker.

Man Utd build momentum with win over Brighton

  Man Utd build momentum with win over Brighton Harry Maguire rose powerfully, causing panic for Ryan and his defence, and with Brighton slow to react, Scott McTominay forced the ball over the line, via a final touch by Davy Propper. Not even the inevitably drawn-out delay for a VAR check, over whether Maguire had handled or Ryan fouled in the build-up to the goal, could dilute the joy of home supporters.It was a scintillating spell of football from a side that, before Thursday’s Europa League win over Partizan Belgrade, had not scored two first half goals at Old Trafford for nearly 10 months since Brighton's last visit in mid-January.

The 2013–14 Western Sydney Wanderers FC season was the club's second season since its establishment in 2012. The club participated in the A-League for the second time, as well as the AFC Champions League for the first time.

Resting the Kosovan meant United did not start their fifth consecutive game with the same starting 11. They had begun the first four games of the season with the same starting 11, something that had not been done in Australia's top flight since Adelaide City and West Adelaide did six times in 1977.

Berisha's absence was compounded in the 22nd minute when Greek international midfielder Panagiotis Kone left the field injured. He was replaced by defender Aaron Calver, with Connor Chapman stepping up to the midfield.

Duke's goal was his fourth of the season and came when right back Daniel Georgievski played the ball to the top of the box where a scramble ensued. Impressive German midfielder Pirmin Schwegler was able to lay the ball off for Georgievski, who had followed his pass forward.

The former Melbourne Victory man slid Duke through into the box and the striker finished with aplomb, curling the ball into the far bottom corner of the net. It was a sloppy bit of defensive play from the usually assured United back three as they were unable to clear their lines.

However, United only had to wait eight minutes to restore parity, with more poor defending leading to the goal. Diamanti's corner was a nice one to the back post, but the manner in which the Wanderers allowed Durante to drift from his man to be virtually alone at the back post was not.

He met the header with a massive part of the goal to aim for and made no mistake. It was a rare goal for the defender, his first in the A-League in 120 games.

United dominated the entire game with their patient, composed playing style. The Wanderers were very poor, granted, but when they did go forward, save for the goal and a late chance to Mo Adam, United's defence were extremely solid.

Most impressive, again, was how United do not favour quick play over everything else. They are able to maintain a nice rhythmic tempo with a team of players adept at weaving in and out of trouble, who give themselves space, and then patiently pick passes off.

Markus Babbel's side had the best defensive record in the league coming into the game and to score two goals was a great effort.

Dario Jertec was particularly impressive in limiting the Wanderers midfield in launching attacks, while Diamanti again added to his reputation as one of the A-League's best players.
