The Western Sydney Wanderers climbed to second spot in the A-League standings on Sunday with a 3-0 victory over the Perth Glory at Pirtek Stadium.

The hosts made the deserved breakthrough three minutes before half-time, Jerome Polenz rifling home at the second attempt after a neat one-two with Youssouf Hersi.

A superb solo goal from Mark Bridge just after the hour mark doubled their advantage and then substitute Tomi Juric put the result beyond doubt 12 minutes from time.

The result left the Wanderers two points clear of the third-placed Melbourne Victory.

Central Coast Mariners responded to conceding an Orlando Engelaar wonder goal by coming from behind to claim a 2-1 victory over Melbourne Heart at AAMI Park.

Engelaar had given Heart the lead when he saw Mariners goalkeeper Liam Reddy off his line and launched a stunning strike from inside his own half directly into the net.

However, Kim Seung-Yong's equaliser in first-half stoppage time and a second-half winner from substitute Bernie Ibini sealed all three points for the reigning champions, giving them a healthy four-point buffer over seventh-placed Sydney FC with the race for finals places hotting up.

Central Coast coach Phil Moss praised Engelaar’s goal after the match, saying: "I've seen a couple of them on TV, I've never seen one live. Look, it was sheer quality. He didn't even take a touch, he just turned, knew where the goal was and the technical ability to actually execute is of [the] top shelf."

On Reddy, he added: "These things happen. He just said to me in the dressing room he's good for one of those a season so hopefully that's the last one."
