Venue: Wellington Regional Stadium (Wellington).
The Nix have a real challenge up ahead as they will host the high flying Perth Glory on Sunday.
Phoenix is at the 9th spot in the table. After starting the season with a win they were unable to carry on that form in the remaining matches. At present they are on a 3 match losing streak in the competition. A total of 9 goals have been conceded while scoring less than a goal per game. This lapse in defense has cost them some valuable points.
They were unable to win any of their last 4 league games, which includes a hat-trick of defeats. Over 2.5 goals came in total in 3 of their previous 5 matches across all venues. In front of their home fans, they are lost the last 2 games against Wanderers and Adelaide. This was preceded by a 2 match winning run against City and Jets.
The visitors have been excellent this season. They are the only team to remain unbeaten until now. They have won 4 matches in their 5 games till now. A total of 11 goals have been scored by their forwards which is the best figures in the competition. Clean sheets are scarce for them, only 1 in 5 games.
The final score in 3 of their 5 matches this season had a total of more than 2.5 goals. Away from home, they have 3 wins in a row too. Under 2.5 goals came in 3 of the last 5 matches on the road for Glory.
Perth will be aiming or another win to complete an impressive 5 match win streak. The hosts will have to be on top of their game for getting at least a point out of this one.
