Wanderers move to top of the table after another stellar performance.
Scoring goals is the difference
The Wanderers arguably didn’t play their best football today, but they still added four goals to the tally.
Canberra were matching it with Western Sydney for the majority of the game until the last 20 minutes, when the Wanderers really took control of the match.
But up until that point, there wasn’t a massive difference between the teams.
The match was played end-to end, with neither side really settling into the game until late in the second half.
Both Canberra and the Wanderers had attacking chances, and they were both initially making similar mistakes in possession.
In the end, it was the small moments that made the big differences.
Wanderers first goal came from a small lapse of concentration from Canberra’s defence, where Kyra Cooney-Cross was left unmarked to head the ball into the net.
Although Canberra and the Wanderers are both quality teams, it’s scoring goals that wins you games – and Western Sydney were able to put four across the line tonight.
