THE PREDICTION

Wellington Phoenix host Melbourne Victory hoping to cement their top-six positions here. The hosts enhanced their chances with a draw against Newcastle last week but complacency could now creep in and Victory will be keen to bounce back after defeat to Perth last weekend. Melbourne certainly have the edge in quality and should have enough to win this one.
