Super sub Brendon Santalab believes Western Sydney Wanderers weren’t at their best against Central Coast on Sunday but says it’s a good sign they were still able to grind out a win.
The Wanderers surged to a fifth straight win, beating the Mariners 2-0 in Gosford thanks to second half goals from Santalab and Mitch Nichols.
While they had three times as many shots as the home side, the Wanderers weren’t at their fluent best but still had a little bit too much class in the end.
“It’s not the way we want to win games,” Santalab conceded on Fox Sports.
“It was a little bit scrappy, especially in the second half.
“I thought we dominated the first half though. It’s nice to pick up the points even when you don’t play too well.”
