Wellington Phoenix will look to get back to winning ways as Western Sydney Wanderers come to town. Mark Rudan’s side are looking to build up the fortress of Westpac Stadium and a win would represent a fantastic start to the Hyundai A-League 2018/19 season.
This game could provide many milestones including Andrew Durante walking out for his 250th appearance for the Phoenix and Roy Krishna will be keen to get that 34th goal to give him the title of Wellington Phoenix’s Top Scorer.
Will Mark Rudan name an unchanged side for the third game in a row or will he change his team heading into Round 3 of the Hyundai A-League?
Cash the Gate is back and bigger than ever. For this game we will be starting from a base of $12,000 and you could be in with a chance to win it all. Terms and Conditions here.
