Wellington Phoenix need to find fit players for match in Queenstown

Wellington Phoenix are in danger of having not enough fit players for the pre-season clash with Melbourne Victory in Queenstown.

Injuries and illness have put a dent in the squad availability which will make it interesting to see what coach Ricki Herbert and his assistants come up with.

Among the players unavailable for their first real hitout are English striker Chris Greenacre (not ready), Tony Lochhead (ill), Andrew Durante (ill), Leo Bertos (toe), Michael Ferrante (Achilles), and Jon McKain (thigh), while question marks hang over Ben Sigmund and Daniel.

Trialling Dutch striker Eddy Putter, a free agent released by Dutch club FC Dordrecht, is also sidelined with an ankle injury.
