The NRMA Insurance Western Sydney Wanderers concluded their 2015/16 pre-season with a solid 2-1 win against APIA Leichhardt at Leichhardt Oval.Goals from Italian marquee Federico Piovaccari and Dutch winger Romeo Castelen set-up the win in the first half before a host of changes in an experimental second stanza.
After soaking up the early pressure, the Wanderers began to dominate the match with Jaushua Sotirio particularly impressive, involving himself in a number of chances created.
It was the other winger though who set-up the first goal as Castelen’s superb cross was headed home at the far post by Piovaccari.
A few minutes later and the lead was doubled as Spanish midfielder Dimas was taken down in the box with Castelen converting the spot-kick.
Saying that, it was a relatively comfortable final 45 minutes for the Wanderers aside from a consolation goal to APIA’s Nathan Milgate to finish the match 2-1.
The Red & Black’s next assignment is the Westfield FFA Cup Quarter Final against Perth Glory which will be played at Dorrien Gardens on Tuesday 29 September.
