Perth Glory regained some measure of credibility with a 1-1 draw in Wellington.
The stats indicated that Glory were fortunate to leave with a point, but Kenny Lowe will no doubt be glad that he has managed to arrest the sideís losing streak.
Perth took the lead on 34 minutes, William Gallas won the ball inside the Wellington half and played the ball forward, before continuing his run into the penalty area.
The Frenchmanís adventurousness was rewarded as he picked up a loose ball before curling a shot into the corner of the net.
Perth were able to defend well for much of the game, as Wellington pushed forward in search of an equaliser.
For a long time it looked like Glory would pull off an unlikely victory, but with only a few minutes remaining, goalkeeper Jack Duncan, who had earlier performed well, dithered in coming out to collect a cross. He was left in no manís land, and Wellingtonís Kenny Cunningham headed home.
Perth remain at the foot of the table, now two points adrift of next placed Melbourne Heart.
Are there signs of recovery for Perth?
