City need to win big
Manawatu after 30 minutes before Gustavo Saralegui chipped one over City keeper Jacob Spoonley’s head from halfway to put his side 2-0 up.
Grant Young managed to put City back in contention with a goal 14 minutes from time with Saralegui and Raf de Gregorio sent from the field after both received their second yellow cards.
But while they were still celebrating, Hayne restored Manawatu’s two-goal advantage with 10 minutes to go.
Auckland City play Manawatu at Kiwitea St on Sunday from 2pm.
