Australian Football: Rudan frustrated as Wanderers held

Western Sydney Wanderers boss Mark Rudan says he has one eye on the future after his side let a two-goal lead slip to draw 2-2 with the Central Coast Mariners.

The Wanderers chances of making the top six look slim and they are priced at 25/1 to play finals at the end of the campaign.

Eye on the future

Rudan took over as boss from the sacked Carl Robinson earlier in the season and will use the remaining games to decide which players will be moved out in the off-season.

"I need to have a good think about what the remaining games look like, there's still plenty of games to go," he told reporters after the game. "We clearly want to win every game and that's the focus. But I want to know, who wants to be here moving forward. It's simple as that."

Wanderers found themselves 2-0 up on Wednesday night following an own goal scored by Kye Rowles and a further strike by Dimi Petratos but they could not hold on to it.

The Mariners were also down to 10 men after having Lewis Miller sent off but grabbed an equaliser five minutes in to stoppage time at the end of the game.

Rudan frustrated

"What disappoints me most, it's groundhog day, almost, is that we spoke about what happened last game and we didn't learn from it," Rudan added. "That's what disappoints me the most. We didn't do enough to kill the game off, simple as that."
