Wellington Phoenix continue their travels across the ditch this week as Head Coach, Mark Rudan’s side face off against Brisbane Roar. The Wellington side have taken four points out of a possible six from the Roar but they’ll need to be back to their best to further cement a spot within the Hyundai A-League top four.
Having scored against Adelaide, Cillian Sheridan will be confident of a starting spot but will face tough competition again from regular scorers, David Williams and Roy Krishna.
Centre-back, Steven Taylor, could make his long awaited return to the Starting XI after appearing on the bench for the Round 24 fixture last weekend.
