Kenny Ahtiu’s winner sees Melbourne Victory defeat Wellington Phoenix 2-1 and a home elimination final

SUPER-sub “King” Kenny Athiu has steered Melbourne Victory to a 2-1 victory over Wellington to help secure an A-League home elimination final.

With just one round to play, fifth-placed Adelaide (36 points) can’t catch Victory (41 points) after they failed to upset ladder-leaders Sydney FC in the late Sunday night game.

Melbourne looked as if they would come away empty-handed against the last-placed Phoenix before their two late goals, with Athiu in the thick of the action after he replaced star Besart Berisha in the 72nd minute.

In only his fourth A-League match the 25-year-old Sudanese-born striker, who is on loan from National Premier League club Heidelberg United, was brought down in the box by Wellington’s Dylan Fox.

Round 26

Dutchman Leroy George stepped up to slot the equalising penalty goal. Four minutes later, Athiu dived for a header into the back of the net after a beautiful ball from James Troisi to seal the win for the home side. Phoenix’s goal came in the first half off a Victory own goal, scored by veteran Leigh Broxham, when the left back — while on the ground — threw a foot out to try to clear the ball only for it to land in the net.
