Herbert says he never stopped believing in Phoenix

The Wellington Phoenix coach Ricki Herbert says when Sydney FC scored two quick goals to be level, he never doubted his team could still come away with the win that would keep them in the A-league finals hunt.

A Paul Ifill penalty in the dying minutes bagged the game for the Phoenix 3-2, and they will have another date at home or travel to Perth for the minor semi-final depending on the Perth Glory / Melbourne Heart game tomorrow night.

Herbert says they missed some chances but he was always confident.

Tim Brown and Ben Sigmund provided two earlier goals.
