Wellington Phoenix vs Perth Glory Preview
Third-placed Wellington Phoenix and sixth-placed Perth Glory are aiming to put some dusty form since the A-League resumed behind them and advance to week two of the playoffs.
Wellington, in the midst of one of the best seasons in their chequered history, won just one and drew two of their six games since mid-July, wrapping up the regular season with a 3-0 loss to also-rans Newcastle. Perth won two and lost four of their six games, coming into the finals of poor defeats to the Victory (4-0) and Western United (2-0).
But the Phoenix’s sole win since the restart was a 2-1 result against the Glory at this weekend’s venue, BankWest Stadium. Gary Hooper and Ulises Davila gave the Phoenix a two-goal lead before Kiwi Dane Ingham replied for the Glory. It ended a four-match losing streak in the rivalry for the New Zealand outfit.
Unfortunately for Wellington, striker Hooper and key defender Tim Payne have been ruled out of the finals. They are still narrow favourites to beat out-of-sorts Perth and remain the value pick. But with both sides struggling to score, we should see a real sudden-death slugfest.
