Wellington Phoenix Ins and Outs – Round 23


Wellington Phoenix are back home and aiming for a potential Hyundai A-League finals spot.

The fourth-placed Wellington Phoenix side will face former head coach, Ernie Merrick and his seventh-placed side at Westpac Stadium, this Saturday 30 March, as they both carry intentions of securing a Hyundai A-League finals place.

The Wellington side that bettered Western Sydney Wanderers two weeks ago, will be confident of getting another three points, especially in front of a suspected record home attendance for the season.

Hyundai A-League top-scorer, Roy Krishna, will be out due to his one-match suspension which will allow for a change up in the starting XI.
