Wellington Phoenix head coach Ufuk Talay says he regards the side’s Easter Monday opponents, Melbourne City, as the best team in the A-League competition.
But with four games to go in the regular season, he says there are still 12 points on offer to help the Phoenix secure the best possible route through the play-offs.
Talay’s comments, and an update on Monday’s game, were made during an interview with NewstalkZB’s Jason Pine.
