Roy Krishna’s Wellington Phoenix defeated Perth Glory 2-1 in the A-League match.
Krishna who was the returning Phoenix hero was a weapon after coming on for All Whites winger Monty Patterson, who also made his first Phoenix start.
In a match important for two ailing sides, Glory defender Shane Lowry scored an own-goal in stoppage time to hand Wellington just their fourth win of the season.
It came from Krishna’s sharp cross, marking a brilliant return for the Fijian international, who had missed three games while in an apparent dispute with his club.
The result ends the Phoenix’s three-match losing streak, including successive 4-0 defeats.
