The Wellington Phoenix are confident star striker Eugene Dadi will have recovered from a small ankle injury in time for their A-League football clash with the Gold Coast this weekend.

Dadi sustained the injury during the side's 1-0 win over Adelaide in Christchurch last week, and has been on light duties at training.

But Phoenix coach Ricki Herbert says the injury is not serious and Dadi is likely to play in Sunday's Gold Coast match.
