Back to back wins has Wellington up into fourth place and suddenly favoured to host that second home final.
The Phoenix will need to keep that winning momentum going against a Jets side who suffered an embarrassing loss to the lowly Mariners before the break.
Newcastle is still in the mix for an unlikely finals berth but needs to shake off that defeat in the F3 Derby and re-focus here.
What swings this game in favour of Wellington is the form of Roy Krishna who has been one of, if not the standout performer of the season so far and he has the ability to turn this game in favour of the Nix.
