Phoenix looking for rare away win at Melbourne Heart

12:36 pm on 4 December 2011

The Wellington Phoenix face the Melbourne Heart away this evening in another crucial A-League football match.

A win in Morwell could see the Phoenix climb to fifth on the table if Sydney can't beat runaway leaders Brisbane at home - currently the Phoenix are dead level with the Heart on points but a place lower in eighth due to goals scored.

The 36-year-old Heart goalkeeper Clint Bolton will play his 446th national league match on Sunday - with only three players having played more top-flight club games in Australia.

Bolton trails just National Soccer League legends Alex Tobin, Paul Trimboli and Damian Mori on the all-time list.
