Wanderers beat Central Coast 2-0 in A-League

The Western Sydney Wanderers maintained their unbeaten home

record this season when they beat Central Coast 2-0 in a repeat of

last year’s grand final in Australian football’s A-League.

Tomi Juric gave the Wanderers the lead after 20 minutes with a

bicycle-kick goal and Youssouf Hersi clinched the match in the 33rd

minute when he scored from a cross by Shinji Ono.

The Wanderers’ sixth win in 11 matches this season keeps them in

second place, two points behind Brisbane and four points ahead of

the Melbourne Victory.

Central Coast announced after the match that New Zealand

midfielder Michael McGlinchey will join former coach Graham Arnold

at J-League club Vegalta Sendai on a one-year loan. Bernie Ibini

will rejoin Central Coast in McGlinchey’s absence.
