Phoenix stun Glory 2-1 in A-League

10:23 am on 18 March 2013

The Wellington Phoenix have an outside chance of avoiding the A-League wooden-spoon after scoring a rare away victory.

Paul Ifill and Stein Huysegems scored the goals and Glen Moss had a great game in goal as the Phoenix beat the Perth Glory 2-1.

They're still bottom of the standings, but a win in their last match and other games going their way could move them off the bottom of the table.

Interim Phoenix coach Chris Greenacre praised the efforts of Moss, and says the result is sweet revenge for them after Perth ended their playoff run last year.

Greenacre says even though they have nothing to play for, it was important they went in and gave a real performance.
