Stein Huysegems got the goal in the 75th minute when he was left all alone by the defence to poke home a low cross from Tyler Boyd, only just into the action as a substitute.

The win, only Wellington's second of the campaign, lifts them to 10 points while Melbourne have just four from their opening 12 fixtures.
