Bet: Bet On This Match HERE
Despite this game being played just south of Sydney, Wellington is the home side for this one with the Cake Tin otherwise occupied.
Even with both sides set to play finals football this season, neither side brings a great amount of form into this clash.
Wellington has won just one of its last five and has not scored more than one goal in a game since January 20.
Sydney on the other hand has lost away to Brisbane and drawn at home to Central Coast in the last two weeks and any Premiership ambitions are disappearing.
The away side has won both meetings between these teams and if either team plays to its potential here they should be able to win this one.
With back to back draws and their January signings coming together nicely, the Phoenix are at good value for a “home” win here.
