Durante urges Wellington Phoenix fans to come out in numbers this weekend

Wellington Phoenix skipper Andrew Durante feels a big crowd at Westpac Stadium this Sunday can help get the side over the line.

Wellington Phoenix skipper Andrew Durante feels a big crowd at Westpac Stadium this Sunday can help get the side over the line.

The Phoenix host fellow finals qualification chasers Newcastle Jets in a vital match for the New Zealand club and Durante says the fans could be crucial in recording a positive result.

“Our supporters, especially the Yellow Fever, have been fantastic right through, but if ever we needed them it is now,” he said.

“Everyone realises how important this game is and the fans can help us get over the line.”

And Durante may get his wish as club owner Terry Serepisos has released 5,000 tickets at $5 each with all proceeds helping out the Queensland Flood Relief Fund which should attract a few extra punters.
