Herbert relieved for win

5:55 am on 5 March 2012

The Wellington Phoenix football coach Ricki Herbert was a relieved man after his side came away with a 2-nil victory over bottom placed Gold Coast United in their A-League clash in the capital yesterday.

It has been a tough week for the visitors, after their owner lost his licence to run the club and it was a last-minute decision to travel to Wellington for the match.

Herbert admits it wasn't easy for his side, who squandered numerous scoring chances....

The Phoenix are third in the standings and they play at 5th placed Melbourne Heart next weekend.
