Humidity and heat make times tough for Phoenix

The Wellington Phoenix's A-League season faces a crucial junction tonight when they square off against the Fury in North Queensland.

The Wellingtonian's knowing anything less than a win will mean the club might struggle to force their way back into playoff contention.

The Phoenix defender Troy Hearfield says it's never an easy trip to Townsville despite North Queensland being equal bottom of the A-League ladder, with the humidity and heat catching many teams off guard.

The game kicks off at 10:30pm.
