Phoenix under pressure to beat Adelaide

6:20 am on 18 December 2009

The Wellington Phoenix are under pressure going into their A-league away game tonight in Adelaide, a team they've never beaten in 7 meetings.

Injuries and suspensions have unsettled the Phoenix in the last three weeks, and if they don't win tonight, they could end up on the bottom of the table.

The two teams drew 1-all in Wellington earlier this season.
