Western United vs Wellington Phoenix prediction and preview 

Teams have struggled for consistency this season and with games in hand, Western United could still make a leap in the A-League standings despite starting off at the eighth spot on Thursday. The hosts are just four points off fourth-placed Sydney, and could easily leapfrog them if they make the most of their games in hand, starting with the fixture against Wellington Phoenix. Western United will be looking to gain revenge following their defeat against the same opposition two weeks earlier. United returned to winning ways last time out against the Central Coast Mariners and will look to build on that performance on Thursday. 

Meanwhile, the Wellington Phoenix are two points off Western United in the A-League standings, but unlike their opponents, they do not have games in hand over the other teams. Phoenix have won just six games all season and will enter the clash having clinched back-to-back wins over Western United and Perth Glory. Wellington would fancy their chances again on Thursday, but Western United do have the upper hand and will be favourites to clinch all three points.
