    93 min: Into the final minute of three added on. And the Nix fans are in wonderland in Wanderland. They must be pinching themselves after waiting 11 games for their first win and now they have three on the trot from a tough period of travel. Meanwhile, the Wanderers lose their unbeaten home record and drop points on the Roar, who have a game in hand as the travel to the Victory for what should be a cracker on Saturday. Amazing what a habit winning can become.   

    There goes the final whistle and no this is not a typo ...

    Phoenix 3-1

    Thanks for joining our live coverage from what was an excellent game for he neutrals. Be sure to log on to smh.com.au for all the reports and wash-up from tonight's stunning upset and all the latest from the overnight round in the Premier League.


    90 min: Uh-oh. Huysegems is limping after shrugging off a couple of challenges. After 90 minutes he is showing signs of fatigue after running his heart out in a an exemplary performance for the Nix and a lay down misere for man of the match. Boyd goes to the corner to waste time and gets clipped for his trouble and the Phoenix get a free kick and try to eat up more time bit that they really need to but it rubs it in to the home side.  Phoenix 3-1 

    88 min: Riera brings down Santa outside the area and the Wanderers get a free kick. Juric lines it up but hits it straight into the wall. Phoenix 3-1

    The big Belgian has single-handedly stunned the high-flying Wanderers. No one saw this coming. And they're not finsihed yet as Boyd lets fly but it is just wide. This kid looks impressive.

    Mooy is off for the Wanderers and Trifiro on. Phoenix 3-1

    84 min: GOAL 3-1! The Nix score again through Huysegems, a lovely backheel flick this time from a low cross from Boyd. Amazing scenes. 

    83 min: Moss makes a hash of a Wanderers corner but the are able to scramble clear. He fists clear again as Juric goes down but no foul and the Nix break though their main man Huysegems. Boyd's shot is blocked for a corner.  

    They go short to Lia but his cross is cleared and the build again. Phoenix 2-1

    Well we have a grandstand finish on our hands. Huysegems set up the first goal and scored the second. Great skills from the big Belgian.

    Meanwhile Ono comes off for Halitit. Santalab hits a low drive from outside the box as he does but Moss pounces on it.

    Phoenix 2-1

     

    77 min: GOAL! Nix 2-1. Huysegems dances into the box and strokes it around Covic into the far corner. Great goal from a great player. 

    75 min: Juric shows amazing skills on the edge of the area with a defender in his pocket as he plays a bit of keepy-uppy to try to tee up a shot but it is blocked as he tries to turn. Audacious stuff. 1-1

    73 min: Mooy goes long and direct right on to Hersi's chest but he is unable to control it. The ball falls to D'Apuzzo but Muscat is able to nip and steal it. Here come the Wanderers again and Hersi lets fly from an angle this time instead of crossing, and it sails well wide. 1-1

     

    71 min: Santalab on for Bridge, the goal scorer for the Wanderers, as Poppa make his first move. 1-1

    69 min: Boyd, the scorer, gets crunched in a tackle by Beauchamp and is down hurt but looks OK to continue. They can ill afford to lose anyone else. 1-1

    The sub was waiting at the far post as Huysegems' square ball across the face of goal eluded three defenders and the keeper. Looks like a genius substitution by Merrick to get the visitors back on level terms. Game on. 1-1

    68 min: GOAL! Phoenix 1-1. Boyd prods home after Huysegems is released by a neat one-two. 

    65 min: Ouch! Brockie leaves a foot in and high on Covic that collects the keeper in the face and gets booked. That could have been nasty but they're all friends again now. Looks like he slipped so benefit on the doubt. It was a gorgeous through ball that put in on goal but Covic was alive to it and put his body and face on the line to snuff out the chance. Wanderers 1-0

    Classy set-up by Ono gives Bridge his third goal of the season. Can the Nix hit back? They've taken a point here before. Boyd on for Cunningham who may have picked up a knock earlier. Wanderers 1-0

    62 min: GOAL! Wanderers 1-0 Bridge latches on to a delightful dink over the top by Ono. 

    59 min: La Rocca cleans up Riera and blows deluxe at the ref for blowing the foul. He gets ticked off but would want to watch it. No leg to stand on there. 0-0

    56 min: Now Cunningham goes down in the area at the other end looks to be hurt. They do win a corner but it hit too deep and the Wanderers get a goal kick. Cunningham looked to have a case there but it was right on the edge of the box and possuibly a free kick. 0-0

    54 min: Wanderers getting on top after an early spell of pressure from the Nix. Hersi went flying under Durante's challenge but it was 50-50 and a call call by the ref. The Nix win a free kick a fair way out in front after Hersi tries to dance with Riera but it ain't that kind of party. Lia hits it low from a layoff but it is easily cut out. 0-0

    52 min: Here they come again. Ono sends in a curling cross and Hersi goes down in the box when all it needed was a head on it but no penalty given. Then Hersi comes back again down the right but is just offside for the return ball. 0-0 

    50 min: The Nix are enjoying a spell off possession in the Wanderers half until Ono steals in and finds Hersi who twists and turns and gets a shot away but Moss is able to fall on it just as it looked like it might squeeze inside the post. 0-0 

    47 min: Hersi and Polenz exchange a flick down the line but again the Wanderers' stout defence holds firm and they are able to break out of their half. Impressive the way they don't hoof and hope. Huysegems swings in a free kick for a stray arm by  D'Apuzzo but it is too flat and is cleared. 0-0

    45 min: Here they come for the second half as the Wanderers kick off. Hicks off for the Nix and Ridento on. You feel that one goal might decide this one. 0-0

    46 min: Just the one minute added and the whistle goes for half-time in a very absorbing battle. The best chance fell to the Wanderers at the end of the half but chances have been few and far between despite the attacking flair shown by both sides. The Nix have obviously done their homework and are well in this match despite their mounting injury toll. Will they be able to keep it up for another 45 minutes? Join us again in a quarter of an hour and find out.

    Happy New (World Cup) Year by the way. This is a good way to kick it off.

    45 min: Hicks finds Boxall down the right but his cross is intercepted by Covic and the Wanderers come again. Polenz hits a perfect cross on to Ono clear in front of goal but he hits the post and it bounces just the wrong side of the line and the Nix get a huge let-off. 0-0

    43 min: The Wanderers ping it around crisply and find Hersi on the right. He teases in another inviting cross but again the Nix are able to clear. Then Hersi and Juric exchange a one-two in the box but his shot is scuffed straight at Moss. All roads lead to Hersi at the moment. 0-0

    40 min: Fenton is tackled in a 50-50 trying to burst through the Wanderers defence and has hurt his bung shoulder. He will have to come off. A shame as he is a talented young fullback. That hurts. Boxall comes on as the injuries mount for the Nix. 0-0

    37 min: The Nix defence is very well marshalled to thwart the Wanderers' attack. They come again through Hersi but Mooy's cross is cleared and La Rocca fouls Fenton in an aerial contest. Hersi is starting to make inroads down the right. 0-0   

    35 min: Hersi bursts through and releases Ono on the right flank but his cross is overhit and the Nix regroup and Moss is able to snuff out the danger. 0-0

    34 min: Penalty area pinball as the ball drops to Ono who backheels to Hersi but they are crowded out and win a free kick to relieve the pressure. 0-0

    33 min: First card of the match as Cunningham collects Polenz late, not the first time he has had a nibble at his opponent. 0-0

    31 min: Mooy hits a volley low and hard but Moss is able to parry it away and it is cleared for a corner. The Wanderers try a variation with better results but the ball goes dead off Juric for a goal kick. 0-0

    29 min: Riera finds Fenton with a lovely sand wedge over the defence. Hicks shoots but it is deflected behind for a corner. 

    An absorbing battle so far. 0-0

    26 min: The Nix have been camped in the Wanderers' half for a couple of minutes now but can't penetrate their watertight defence. 0-0

    24 min: Huysegems fashions a shot out of nowhere in a crowded area but it flies wide. Nice footwork from the big man, who has been in fine form for the Nix. 0-0 

    22 min: No Hernandez, no Ifill, no worries so far for the Nix as they look composed on the ball and terrier-like in defence, pressing the Wanderers across the park. 0-0

    19 min: Brockie pounces on a loose pass in defence and finds Huysegems but the Wanderers are able to regroup and defuse the attack. 0-0

    17 min: Bridge wins a corner, the Wanderers' 5th so far, but again they fail to beat the first man. Polenz bombs a long ball into the box but Moss is all over it. 0-0  

    16 min: Lia wins a free kick outside the area. Brockie curls it but can't beat the wall. 0-0 

     

    14 min: Juric puts a beautiful cross on La Rocca's head clear on goal but it flies just over. It wouldn't have counted as he was flagged offside. The Wanderers are starting to flex their muscles. 0-0 

    11 min: Muscat gets boxed in trying to play out and the clearance falls to Ono. Fenton's attempted chest back to the keeper falls dangerously to Bridge but his shot is smothered for a corner. La Rocca meets the header but it is deflected wide. That was close. 0-0

    9 min: The Wanderers win another corner as Bridge breake through on goal but his touch is heavy and forces him wide, allowing the Nix defence to block his shot. Huysegems again clears the resultant corner but the hosts seemed to have joined the game now. 0-0

    8 min: The Nix win a corner and go short. The ball drops in the area but Huysegems' shot is blocked and falls to Covic. They go straight down the other end and win a corner but it is easily cleared. 0-0 

    6 min: The Nix get an early shot away through Cunningham but it is blocked by Mooy. They are putting together some decent possession in the Wanderers half and don't seem overawed by their opposition. 0-0 

    4 min: Brockie almost stole in on goal after an error by Polenz but Wanderers skipper Michael Beauchamp, back in the side, made a timely tackle that had be spot-on on the edge of the area. 0-0  

    2 min: Friendly fire as Polenz and La Rocca collide in an aerial challenge but they appear to be OK. 0-0

    1 min: The Nix kick off and we're away. The ball goes dead and the Wanderers have a goal kick that releases Tomi Juric but he is flagged offside, wrongly as well. 0-0

    No Matthew Spiranovic or Tahj Minniecon for the hosts as they make six changes but Shinji Ono and Youssouff Hersi will start.

    The Nix have lost Carlos Hernandez for six weeks with a broken list, a big blow to the visitors.

    Welcome to our live coverage of Western Sydney Wanderers v Wellington Phoenix. Shane Brady here with you for the next two hours.

    The Phoenix finally cracked it for a win two weeks and backed it up with another so this game could be closer than the gap between these two sides on the table might suggest.

    The Phoenix’s lowly position has belied some of the football they have played, and but for some diabolical finishing they could be much higher as they have always been hard to beat.

    The Wanderers go into this match with the lingering distraction of ugly incidents off the field and we hope it does not become a regular occurrence.

    Everyone enjoys the spectacle of the Red and Black Bloc but hooliganism is one thing football in this country does not need. 

    Not long now until the action unfolds on the pitch where Tomi Juric announced his return from injury with a bang last week. It will take something to top that flying volley, surely one of the contenders for goal of the season.
