A look at what has gone right and wrong for the Western Sydney Wanderers in their successful and disastrous season so far, and why there is great encouragement for the future
The Wanderers dominated the first half, but didn’t make the most of their chances, and the game petered out into a stalemate.
After eight rounds, Perth still sit top of the A-League ladder. It’s felt a bit like no one has taken them seriously, but increasingly, Kenny Lowe’s side are proving they are genuine challengers this season, by virtue of their high press.
A frantic first half saw five goals in thirty-five minutes, but Adelaide were unable to equalise despite dominating the rest of the match.
