Phoenix play winless defending champions

8:16 am on 11 September 2010

The Wellington Phoenix play the defending A league football champions Sydney in Wellington tonight hoping the visitors winless run continues.

Sydney's failed to win a match in their five games so far and are last in the 11 team competition, while the Phoenix have one just won of their matches to sit in eighth spot.

The Phoenix were unbeaten at Westpac stadium last year and will be banking on that to help them move up the table, after lacklustre efforts in recent games, losing away Perth and Brisbane
