Wellington Phoenix were held at home to a 1-1 draw by a Wanderers side which ended the contest with 10-men.
The hosts were pushed back deep from the outset, and Western Sydney’s pressure paid off just before the half-hour when Brendon Santalab found the net on the end of a corner.
Josep Gombau’s side would ride this advantage until the 78th minute, but a bullet strike from substitute Matija Ljujic equalised for Wellington in spectacular fashion.
A red card shown to Brendan Hamill gave the Phoenix some hope of taking all three points, however, Matthew Ridenton fumbled their best chance to snatch victory in the late stages.
Here are some of the best reactions to come from Twitter after the result:
Unforgivable from Ridenton. Just utterly abysmal #WELvWSW

More points thrown away again with another inept second half. Lucky to hold on for a point. Any other team in the league and we lose that 3-1. #WELvWSW
