The Phoenix top goal scorer says having a sell-out crowd at their back in tomorrow's A-League playoff game against the Newcastle Jets is the kind of pressure every football side wants.

All 34 and a half thousand seats have been sold for the match at Westpac Stadium, and the Phoenix are firm favourites to continue their 18-game unbeaten Wellington run.

Striker Paul Ifill says even when the fans have numbered only nine thousand they have sounded like twenty thousand, so tomorrow's crowd will be play a vital part.
