Football Federation Australia has confirmed the decision to red card Wellington Phoenix defender Ryan Lowry against Perth Glory was wrong.

Phoenix boss David Dome has confirmed he spoke with A-League boss Greg O'Rourke this morning, who has consulted with his head of referees and admitted the call was incorrect.

Football commentator Fred de Jong says that the decision was a mystery.

de Jong told D'Arcy and Goran that it highlights issues with the VAR system.

"VAR's meant to resolve these sort of things, not introduce them, and at the moment it's not doing what it's intending use is."

He says that the issue has overshadowed a good game.
