The Wellington Phoenix have been beaten 2-1 by the Melbourne Heart in their A-League football match in Melbourne.

It was nil-all at half-time before the home side scored twice after the break.

Tim Brown netted for the Phoenix who dominated the last 20 minutes but couldn't get the equaliser.

The Phoenix return from their two matches in Melbourne with just a point after their nil-all draw with the Victory on Wednesday.

They next meet the North Queensland Fury in Wellington next Friday.
