In a tight W-League season one win can be a huge boost and that's what has put Western Sydney back in with a shot as the Wanderers managed an impressive 3-0 win over Perth Glory at Marconi Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

There was a boost for the Wanderers with Mackenzie Arnold, Alanna Kennedy and Heather Garriock all returned for the Wanderers and showed why they are such a vital part of the club.

It was an even half to start the match but it seemed that Western Sydney always held some sort of edge in the match with Chantel Jones, for Perth, being the busier keeper.

The match was largely played in midfield which meant the match looked like heading to the break level but in the second minute of stoppage time that changed.

Jenna Kingsley sent the cross in for Helen Petinos to use her speed and run on to as she sent the ball home at the far post to make it a 1-0 lead for Western Sydney at the break.

Garriock came on after the break and not long after her break from the game due to motherhood was over she got a goal.

She was able to run on to the ball, that was loose in the box, and chipped the keeper impressively to double Western Sydney's lead.

Western Sydney continued to attack with Perth looking rattled as they struggled throughout to contain an impressive Wanderers attack.

Kingsley made it three with 15 minutes to play as Michelle Carney sent in a cross that Kingsley put away to seal the win for Western Sydney.

It could well have been four but a late effort from Catherine Cannuli went over the bar, meaning Western Sydney had to settle for a 3-0 win.
