Ifill keen for more time on field for Phoenix

9:14 am on 4 January 2012

The Phoenix playmaker Paul Ifill says his injury marred football season has been even more frustrating as he's been in good form on the few occasions he has managed to take the field.

Ifill is set to return to the Phoenix lineup for this afternoon's match against fourth placed Sydney in Wellington having missed the past three games with a groin injury.

The Phoenix are fifth on the A League table and beat Sydney 2-1 the last time the two side's played one another in November.

The match kicks off at 3pm.
