(MENAFN - Kora) A severe Thunderstorm hit Parramatta just before kick-off, forcing the start of the match to be delayed by 30 minutes due to a waterlogged pitch



And it was the visitors who looked to deal with the conditions better as Fabio Ferreira and Marcelo Carrusca went close



Western Sydney did plenty of probing to the well-organised Adelaide defence without really testing Eugene Galekovic in goal



The second half followed a similar theme with both sides trying everything to unlock their opponents defence without much success



The result means the Wanderers have now gone three games without a win and they missed the chance to close the gap on league-leaders Brisbane Roar



To further compound the Wanderers misery, Melbourne Victory moved above them into second with a last-gasp 2-1 win at Perth Glory



Archie Thompson scored the winner in the 90th minute after capitalising on some brilliant work from his Victory teammates to earn the three points for the weary club



Saturday's match was Melbourne's third in nine days following a mid-week AFC Champions League clash against South Korean club Jeonbuk Motors



Victory skipper Mark Milligan was credited with scoring both goals at either end of the pitch in the first half, including an own goal that handed Glory the lead after 27 minutes




Michael Thwaite's low header from a corner ricocheted off the midfielder's knee and into the back of the net, sparking wild celebrations from the Glory defender



But Victory did hit back in the 40th minute after referee Shaun Evans awarded a penalty to the visitors when James Troisi was held in the box by Matt Davies as he charged towards goal - Milligan atoning for his earlier mistake



The visitors went in hunt for a winner and were forced to wait until stoppage time when Thompson pounced on a Troisi pass to move Melbourne into the top two



In Saturday's other action, Central Coast Mariners boosted their hopes of a final series berth with a 3-1 derby win over Newcastle Jets



Two goalkeeping howlers from Mark Birighitti book-ended the result which moves the Mariners into fourth position



Eddie Bosnar's free-kick from near halfway scuffed across the turf and Birighitti inexplicably let the ball bobble past him, with Berni Ibini doubling the advantage within the opening 10 minutes



Joel Griffiths cut the margin after 23 minutes before substitute midfielder Glen Trifiro's late goal secured the triumph, converting after Birighitti had spilled Matt Simon's initial effort
