Phoenix set to welcome back Ifill

5:19 pm on 3 January 2012

The Wellington Phoenix striker Paul Ifill will return to the squad for tomorrow's A-League game against Sydney in Wellington, but whether he'll be in the starting line up is still undecided.

Ifill, who's missed the past three games with a groin injury, came through training today but coach Ricki Herbert is unsure whether to include him in the starting lineup or bring him on from the bench.

The Phoenix are fifth in the competition with Sydney one place above them in fourth.

The Phoenix won the last encounter between the two sides, 2-1, in November.
