A-League prediction - Who will win between Wellington Phoenix and Western Sydney Wanderers on 13th January?

Prior to Wednesday I think I might have been looking out for an away win for Western Sydney to extend their current unbeaten run to four matches, But Wellington, [surprisingly] turned over Melbourne Victory here, and that will surely provide the club and the squad that not all is over yet. 

OK, back to reality, Victory managed to get themselves down to ten men for all but 8 minutes of the game thanks to an 8th minute sending off for Rhys Williams, OH, and, Victory did score the second for Phoenix too!!

With so much fortune in their favour, and with Wanderers only failing to take three points from Adelaide thanks to an equaliser four minutes from time, to extend their run to three unbeaten, I think better than Even odds for a Wanderers win is too good to let pass
