WATCH: Wollongong Wolves reach first NPL Grand Final with 2-0 win over Perth SC

Wollongong Wolves will contest the NPL Grand Final for the first time following a 2-0 triumph over Perth SC.

Thomas James struck the opener at Albert Butler Park and then turned provider in stoppage time for Takeru Okada as the New South Wales champions booked their spot in the showpiece game.

The deadlock was broken when Englishman James used his electric pace to burst behind the Western Australians’ defence and strike past Francis Soale at the second attempt on 29 minutes.

Luke Wilkshire's side controlled the bigger share of possession and, despite late pressure, Perth could not force an opportunity to level against a flawless home defence.

Wolves hit Perth on the counter as the clock ticked past 90 with Japanese forward Okada making no mistake from a tight angle with the visitors' defenders stranded up-field.

Wollongong, who are playing in the NPL Finals Series for the first time, will host 2018 runners-up Lions FC in the Grand Final after the Queenslanders beat Maitland 2-0 on Saturday.
