Phoenix continue revival

PA Sport
Wellington Phoenix celebrate their victory.

Wellington Phoenix continued their impressive revival as they fought back from a goal down to stun high-flying Western Sydney Wanderers 3-1 and claim only their third victory of the A-League season.

Second-placed Wanderers had looked set to move to within a point of leaders Brisbane Roar when they took a 62nd-minute lead through Mark Bridge, but

visiting Phoenix hit back superbly with three goals in the final 22 minutes to claim the points.

Substitute Tyler Boyd levelled the scores four minutes after being introduced in the 68th minute, and then Stein Huysegems sealed the victory with a brace in the 78th and 83rd minutes.

The triumph was Wellington's third on the trot -- having failed to to win any of their opening 10 matches -- and saw them move out of the bottom two.
