A-League: Phoenix facing tricky Perth trip

Ladder-leaders Wellington Phoenix have a testing game in Perth against a rejuvenated Glory side on Saturday, with two other A-League fixtures also taking place.

Phoenix are going well as they have opened up a five-point lead at the top of the table and are in the box seat to win the minor premiership.

They can be backed at 3.00 to hold top spot at the end of the regular season, but the job is not done yet.

Next up they face the Glory, who have new owners and who are stringing a good run of results together.

Elsewhere on Saturday, Adelaide United entertain Western Sydney Wanderers, while Sydney FC are at home to Melbourne City.

All four sides have work to do to make the top six so there is all to play for on Saturday.
