Wellington remain unchanged for Queensland match

For the first time this season, the Wellington Phoenix will take an unchanged side into a match.

After recent good form including two wins and a draw from its last three matches, the Phoenix are confident they can get the job done against the Queensland Roar at home on Sunday with the same line-up that defeated Central Coast last week.

On the other hand, Queensland coach Frank Farina has handed out a severe caution to his charges, reiterating that making the most of chances upfront is so vitally important.

“The manner in which we’re playing at the moment is okay, but we’re just not finishing,” he told the A-League’s official website.

“That has been our problem, particularly at home, we’re creating chances but we’re not finishing them, so that has to change for us to start winning games.

“If it means making changes and giving other people opportunities, that’s what we’ll do.

“It will happen this week.”

The Roar will be improved by the return of Dutch striker Sergio van Dijk from injury who will boost to the team’s strike power.
