Late goals cost Perth Glory

Perth Glory have been thumped 5-2 at the hands of the Wellington Phoenix.

The Phoenix recorded their first win of the A-League season and looked a class above the fourth place Perth Glory. 

Xavier Torres opened the account for the Glory inside the first 10 minutes of the match. 

Wellington put on back to back goals to take a 2-1 lead into half time. 

Perth were quick out of the blocks in the second half as Shane Lowry found the back of the net. 

The home side hit the front in the 52nd minute of the match that left the Glory needing to scramble for another goal. 

A controversial video referral put the Phoenix at the penalty spot and then give them a 4-2 lead.

Another was slammed on in the 87th minute to finalise the rout.
