Head to Head


Wellington have a 3-1 advantage over Western United in the head-to-head with no draws from four meetings. 

A 90th minute goal from striker Ben Waine helped the Phoenix snatch a 3-2 victory in their last meeting.

Western United Form


Western United sit just outside the top six after three wins from their last four matches. 

A goal inside the first minute from winger Lachie Wales was all Western needed as they held on to beat Newcastle 1-0 away from home. 

Their meeting with Wellington followed where the Phoenix scored late to win the match 3-2. Western striker Besart Berisha converted a penalty, while Spanish import Iker Guarrotxena also scored. 

The green-and-black quickly turned things around as they defeated Central Coast 1-0 in Tasmania. Winger Connor Pain scored in the fifth minute to give his side the early lead and ultimately the match-winner.

Wellington have put two straight losses behind them to record consecutive wins in the league. 

Following their 3-2 loss at home against Melbourne City, the Phoenix bounced back with a 3-2 win of their own against Western United. 

Captain Ulises Davila equalised from the penalty spot before winger Jaushua Sotirio gave the Phoenix the lead in the 53rd minute. With scores locked at 2-2 in the 90th minute, forward Ben Waine found a dramatic winner to give the Phoenix the three points. 

Wellington’s good form continued as they recorded a rare 3-1 win away to Perth. Waine and Sotirio both scored as well as midfielder Louis Fenton, as the Phoenix closed the gap on the top six.
