The good news for Brisbane in this game, a win here and they could guarantee that they will avoid claiming the club’s first ever wooden spoon.
The bad news though, is that a win is highly unlikely and even if they do win, catching the Wanderers in eighth place is a long shot at best.
Brisbane also has an unpleasant memory of this fixture, they lost to Wellington 4-1 back in December in what turned out to be John Aloisi’s last game in charge.
Wellington didn’t look that good when they went down to Adelaide last week but they should still have enough to get by what is left of an injury ravaged Roar side.
