Crunch stage for Phoenix

12:11 pm on 23 January 2011

The Phoenix need to beat Perth Glory today and keep winning to ensure their place in the play-offs of the A-League football competition, with six games left to try to break into the top six.

The Wellington Phoenix are lying eighth on the table and midfielder Tim Brown says anything can happen at this end of the competition, especially among the tightly packed top eight.

Brown says teams are tired and it's who can finish the strongest. The Phoenix did that last year and Brown's hoping they can do it again.

The Phoenix play Perth Glory at five o'clock in Wellington.
