Claiming their first ASB Premiership win of 2015 after Sunday's loss to the Wellington Phoenix, Auckland City got across the line thanks to a 61st minute Ivan Vicelich header from a corner.

Auckland City coach Ramon Tribulietx says his team earned the victory while still finding their feet again in the ASB Premiership competition after their efforts at the FIFA Club World Cup in Morocco in December and in a holiday season friendly against Japan.

Auckland City's next outing is Sunday's trip to Hawke's Bay United while Wanderers host Waitakere United at QBE Stadium on Saturday.
