Penrith Stadium was the good luck charm the Wanderers needed when they won their first A-League match of the season there on Sunday afternoon against the Wellington Phoenix.
Nikita Rukavytsa scored early and Brendon Santalab clinched the game with a late second goal to preserve a 2-0 scoreline for the men in red and black.
The long-awaited win broke a streak of 14 winless A-League games.
After grabbing three points on a sweltering evening the Wanderers are, remarkably, just one point behind the second-last Newcastle Jets with two games in hand.
Wanderers coach Tony Popovic said the match and lead-in to the loss against Melbourne City was the “poorest week since we started the club”.
“The players were pretty nervous trying to hold onto something at the end,” he said.

Hawks fly high
St Clair Hawks are still top of the table in Nepean District first grade after they picked up a narrow first innings win over Panthers at Jamison Park.
Panthers posted a competitive 225 in their first innings on day one, with Dean Carr leading the way with the ball for the Hawks, taking 5/57 from 21 overs.
Despite a promising start, the Hawks appeared to be in a bit of strife when they slumped to 8/173. Fortunately the tail wagged and a 54-run stand from Steven Frew (34 n.o) and Adam Weir 20 n.o) saw them home at 8/227.
They take on St Clair United this weekend.
