Perth Glory draw 1-1 at Wellington Phoenix to move level on points with two teams in second place in the A-League table.

A 28th-minute equaliser from Ryo Nagai has earned Perth Glory a 1-1 draw with Wellington Phoenix.

Andrew Durante had given Wellington a third-minute advantage, but Nagai replied just before the half-hour mark to earn his side a share of the spoils.

Wellington entered the match without a win in their opening four games, but things looked positive when Durante capitalised on some poor marking to give the home side an early lead.

Perth gradually got themselves back in the game, and 25 minutes after conceding, they levelled the match when Nagai netted after some fine approach play from Sidnei.

Jamie Maclaren wasted a late opportunity for Glory after being put clean through on goal, meaning Perth missed out on the chance to move to the top of the A-League table.
