Dadi shocker gifts Glory the points

Eugene Dadi endured a nightmare homecoming as Perth Glory notched a 2-0 win over Wellington Phoenix in a fiery A-League clash at ME Bank Stadium on Friday night.

Dadi, who was shafted by Perth earlier this month but entered the match on a high after three goals in two matches for the Phoenix, missed a second-half penalty in one of the worst spot kicks ever seen in the A-League to end any chance of a Wellington fightback.

First-half strikes from Daniel McBreen and Todd Howarth had given Perth a 2-0 lead but Dadi had the chance to peg one back in the 73rd minute when referee Ryan Shepheard controversially deemed Glory midfielder Scott Bulloch had brought down his opponent in the box.

Dadi stepped up to the spot but his limp kick rolled safely into the awaiting arms of Perth goalkeeper Tando Velaphi, who hardly had to move and couldn't believe his luck.

It capped a miserable night for Dadi, who was fortunate to survive into the second half and was routinely booed by the 9,368 once-adoring crowd.

After receiving a yellow card for dissent following Perth's opener, the 36-year-old was lucky not to receive a second when his lunging tackle on Jacob Burns sent the Glory skipper crashing to the turf.

Players from both sides could come under scrutiny from Football Federation Australia's match review panel after a scuffle broke out after the penalty was awarded, with Glory defender Naum Sekulovski in the thick of the action.

Perth's second win on the trot lifts Dave Mitchell's men into fifth spot, just one point adrift of fourth-placed Newcastle, who take on Sydney on Sunday.

Wellington slip to sixth but are still three points clear of Central Coast, who drew 1-1 with Gold Coast earlier in the night.

McBreen, who scored the winner in Perth's 3-2 mid-week win over Adelaide, continued his dream run at the Glory with his second goal in as many starts.

The former Fury striker, who ironically was brought to Perth in part to cover for the absence of Dadi, expertly chested down Sekulovski's lobbed pass, stepped inside Phoenix defender Andrew Durante and drilled the ball low and to the right of goalkeeper Liam Reddy in the 23rd minute.

Howarth doubled the lead with a close-range volley in the 42nd minute when Jamie Coyne's cross floated over the Phoenix defence and found the Glory midfielder unmarked at the far post.
