Phoenix win in India again

6:02 am on 27 August 2012

Four goals from Jeremy Brockie has propelled the Wellington Phoenix to a 5-2 win over Shillong Lajong in their latest A-League preseason match in India.

Brockie is looking to secure his place in the starting side after moving from Newcastle in the off-season.

Coach Ricki Herbert says it was another solid performance on a pitch that didn't help the fluency of their passing, and he couldn't fault the work-rate and commitment that led to five quality goals.

The Phoenix won their first match 3-0, and now move onto Shillong where they will play an I-League selection in a friendly on Wednesday.
