2017 A-League Week 14: Perth Glory vs. Wellington Phoenix
January 05, 2017 by Marc Jerbs

On Thursday, the Wellington Phoenix will travel to Perth, Western Australia to play Perth Glory in Round 14 of the 2017 A-League. Perth will play host to Wellington at nib Stadium (Perth Oval) and game time is set at 9PM AEDT.

Only two points separate fifth-placed Perth Glory from eight-placed Wellington Phoenix which gives this fixture a huge importance for both clubs. In Round 2, Perth got the 2-0 win over Wellington. But they have not scored a win in their last six games. Despite falling short for maximum points, the Glory are still well-positioned for a push in the second half of the season.

Coaches Chris Greenacre and Des Buckingham has led Wellington to four games without a loss since taking over from Ernie Merrick but have drawn their last three games. If Phoenix is make a leap from the table they will have to start turning their draws into victories.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed Perth Glory as the favorite to beat Wellington Phoenix on Thursday night.
