THE PREDICTION

There is not a great deal for either of these teams to play for coming into this final match but Wellington Phoenix should have more focus and motivation here. They have a chance of finishing second still but have not won any of their last three matches and they will be keen to get a win ahead of the play-offs. They will be without key striker Gary Hooper but they should field their strongest available line-up and they are favoured in the draw no bet market.
