Here’s every goal from Round 24, in a nine-minute highlights package:


What’s at stake

The club that finishes top of the table after the completion of the 27 rounds of games will win the Premier’s Plate.

For the Phoenix, it would be the club’s first trophy since the club was founded in 2007.

By finishing in the top four, the Phoenix have gained home advantage in the finals play-offs, a set of games to decide who will play in the Championship grand final.

Finishing top of the table would mean the Phoenix would host the grand final if they reached it.

The possibility of a grand final at Sky Stadium over the weekend of May 24-26 has led to the postponement of the annual Wellington Food Show.

The food event was due to be held at the stadium but has been rescheduled for the last weekend in August.
