Western Sydney Wanderers lie sixth in the A-League going into this weekend’s fixtures and Sunday sees them entertain bottom-side Wellington Phoenix. The Phoenix have lost their last two fixtures and have only one once on Australian soil this season, and with that in mind, all signs point to a home win this time around.
Wellington Phoenix have not beaten Western Sydney Wanderers in their last five outings, so you must cast your minds back almost two years to the day for the New Zealander’s last success against this opposition. Valentines Day 2016 would see the Phoenix come out on top and this was thanks to a 5-2 win in Sydney, with Blake Powell earned the plaudits after scoring a hat-trick and taking home the match ball.
