The Wellington Phoenix midfielder Kosta Barbarouses thought he'd finally got on the scoreboard for the side with their 3-nil win over the Central Coast Mariners at the weekend, but officials have ruled otherwise.
Barbarouses was claiming his second minute strike from outside the box as his goal, however it took a deflection off teamate Hamish Watson who has been credited with the goal.
While the result marked a change in fortune for the Phoenix following the resignation of coach Ernie Merrick,
Watson admits Barbourouses is none too pleased.
"It was a good finish wasn't it?," joked Watson.
"They all count, is all I'll say so I'll take it...(Kosta's) not very happy about it. He's still adamant it's his and came off a defender so I've said I'll set him up for one on the weekend.
The Phoenix, now sit eighth on the A-League table and play the Western Sydney Wanderers in Auckland on Saturday.
