Wellington Phoenix can make history this Saturday as they look for a record breaking eighth game unbeaten in the Hyundai A-League. It has been a busy period on the road for the Wellington side so a homecoming is long overdue and confidence will be high heading into the fixture against strugglers Central Coast Mariners.
Last weekend, Roy Krishna bagged a 90th minute winner to grab all three points against Western Sydney Wanderers and Mark Rudan’s side will be looking forward to playing in front of a home crowd again.
Mandi Sosa serves his final suspension so will Head Coach Mark Rudan name an unchanged starting XI from last weekend’s win or will there be changes?
Cash the Gate is back and it’s bigger than ever! We’ll be starting from a base of $27,000 so if the crowd exceeds 10,000 people, you could be in to win! Grab your ticket and get your friends and family together to join in on all the action and you could win big this Summer!
