Sydney: Asian club champions Western Sydney Wanderers remain win-less in Australia`s A-League this season after a 1-0 loss to Wellington Phoenix on Sunday.

The Wanderers are stranded in last place on the standings after in-form Fijian striker Roy Krishna scored the winner from the penalty spot.

While Ante Covic saved Krishna`s initial spot-kick, the Phoenix forward followed up to tuck away his fifth goal of the campaign.

Wellington`s win consolidated a place in the top four, five points above fifth-placed Sydney FC.

Sydney suffered their third straight home loss, to Adelaide United, on Friday.

Adelaide rebounded from two straight losses of their own to win 3-0 through late goals by Bruce Djite, Spaniard Pablo Sanchez and Awer Mabil.

Melbourne Victory snatched a late 1-0 win on Saturday, with Brazilian Gui Finkler`s brilliant late free-kick sinking the Newcastle Jets.

Melbourne City held leaders Perth Glory to a 1-1 draw on Friday, with Richard Garcia`s header cancelling out Aaron Mooy`s opener.

Glory hold a four-point lead over Victory after 12 games.

The A-League continues through the New Year break, with two full rounds in the next nine days before breaking for the Asian Cup in Australia.
