Wanderers fans couldn't have asked for a better start. Two minutes into the match Mitchell Duke sprayed a lovely cross-field ball to Bruce Kamau who sent it back into the box first time for the waiting Kwame Yeboah.

After a short VAR check, Yeboah celebrated his first goal of the A-League season. 

Melbourne City equalised through a penalty from Jamie Maclaren and took the lead as the Socceroo set up Josh Brillante for a simple tap in. 

Celebrations were short lived however as Kwame Yeboah rifled home a volley to level the score, after Alex Meier set him up with a cushioned header.

The match hit fever pitch in stoppage time, as Lachlan Wales blitzed past Daniel Wilmering to cut back for Maclaren who slotted it past Daniel Lopar. 


Babbel fury: I'm not saying anything about the referees. But we are not blind here, no?

Jamie Maclaren has continued his remarkable goalscoring run with two goals in Melbourne City's controversial 3-2 A-League win over Western Sydney.


Daniel Lopar - 6

Lopar tipped Joshua Brillante's long range effort over the bar in the first half and was tested by Cabrera in the second half.

Daniel Wilmering - 6

Wilmering got pulled out of position on occasion by Craig Noone to open up the space in behind him. As the game progressed his attacking play improved.

Patrick Ziegler - 5.5

Ziegler's miscommunication with Georgievski left Maclaren free in the box who made no mistake with his finish. 

Dylan McGowan - 5.5

McGowan didn't deal with the danger of Luna and Maclaren well enough in the corner as Maclaren skipped away to set up Brillante's goal. 

Daniel Georgievski - 6.5

Showing great tenacity as always, Georgievski showed big improvements from round fives loss to Western United. A splendid cross to Meier set up Yeboah's equaliser and a braveheart performance which spawn a million memes from his hastily taped-up chin.

Nicholas Sullivan - 7

Sullivan was back in the squad after a short break through injury and was doing a terrific job tracking back to man mark Melbourne City's Josh Brillante.
