Phoenix lose in dying seconds in Wellington

6:04 pm on 8 January 2012

The Wellington Phoenix have conceded a goal in the final seconds of their A-league football clash at a sodden Westpac Stadium to go down 1-nil to the Perth Glory.

Poor defending cost the home side late into injury time with the Glory sneaking a goal in the dying moments.

The loss leaves the Phoenix fourth on the A-league table and needing to win at least one of their next two away games to have any chance of reaching the playoffs.
