While their six-match winning streak came to an end in a 2-1 defeat to Western United, City bounced back with a 3-2 win against Wellington. 

Defender Curtis Good opened the scoring, while Maclaren and fellow striker Marco Tilio added goals of their own. 

A 98th minute Maclaren penalty then saw City rescue a point against reigning champions Sydney FC in a 1-1 draw.

Amid all the chaos, it appears the Victory may have turned a corner.

A 3-0 loss at home to Sydney followed, before the club picked up just its third win of the season. 

Second half goals to defender Dylan Ryan and forward Lleyton Brooks saw the Victory defeat Newcastle 2-1 in their first win in six matches.

Winger Marco Rojas is still out with a fractured leg while experienced midfielder Leigh Broxham will also miss with a hamstring injury. 

Defender Ryan Shotton will also spend another week out, though ex-Middlesbrough striker Rudy Gestede is a chance to return from a knee injury.
