Kenny Lowe’s men looking to return to the winners circle. They go into the match with just one win the space of a month and conceded two late goals last week to go down at home to Newcastle 2-1. Confidence is low in the Glory camp to say the least but the same could be said for the visitors who secured a point in a nil-all stalemate against Brisbane in Round 10.
3 KEY POINTS
- These two sides are ranked in the bottom two for defence this season
- WELLINGTON are without key goalscorers Roy Krishna and Andrew Durante
- PERTH has lost four of their last five matches
- Wellington beat Perth back in November by a score of 5-2
- Perth has won four of the past six clashes between the sides
- Wellington has scored the first goal in this fixture on the past three occasions
- Kenny Lowe’s men will surely want a bit of payback after they were humiliated 5-2 in New Zealand just over a month ago. Playing in front of their home crowd is definitely a big advantage. They’re not playing all that well at present but the Phoenix are the league’s worst road side (0-1-3) and we cannot see them getting the cash here.
WELLINGTON / PERTH
- The Phoenix are likely to open the scoring but may not be able to hang on
- The Phoenix hitman comes into this round as equal leader in the Golden Boot and bagged a double the last time these teams met
TOTAL GOALS OVER OR UNDER
- The Overs has saluted in the past three clashes between the sides
