PREVIEW: WELLINGTON - MELBOURNE
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
BRIAN SCIARETTA - Friday, October 28, 2011
Wellington Phoenix will be aiming to move into third place in Australia's A-League when they host Melbourne Victory on Saturday at Westpac Stadium.

Alex Smith made his first start last weekend for Wellington Phoenix and could start again against Melbourne. Smith is normally a forward but he could see time at right back due to injuries

Wellington Phoenix have a 1-1-1 record through the first three games but lost last Saturday to Perth Glory. They currently sit in fourth place in the 10 team league.

Melbourne Victory have only two draws on the season and last weekend they played to a 0-0 stalemate against their cross-town rivals Melbourne Heat.

Wellington Phoenix will be without Jimmy Downey, Lucas Pantelis, Mirjan Pavlovic and Paul Ifill due to injuries. They will also be missing suspended Manny Muscat.

Melbourne Victory are not reporting any injuries.
