Stats analysis: Wellington's drought-breaking win

Wellington Phoenix will be breathing a sigh of relief following a come-from-behind 2-1 win over Melbourne Victory on Wednesday night. 

The victory was Wellington's second of the season and ended a seven-match winless run in the Hyundai A-League for Darije Kalezic's side. 

In fact, the Phoenix also went seven matches without a victory prior to their last win in November (5-2 win over Perth Glory).
