Fen­ton de­fended as Nix take hit

Herald on Sunday - - IN OTHER NEWS -

Welling­ton Phoenix coach Ufuk Talay has de­fended the ac­tions of Louis Fen­ton after he was in­volved in a sick­en­ing col­li­sion in the Phoenix’s 1-0 loss to the Western Sydney Wan­der­ers on Fri­day night. Wan­der­ers striker Ni­co­lai Muller was knocked out in the col­li­sion, with Fen­ton re­ceiv­ing only a yel­low card. “Louis is not the type of player that comes into a chal­lenge with any kind of mal­ice,” Talay said. The Phoenix’s chances of claim­ing a top-two A-League reg­u­lar season fin­ish took another hit last night, with Mel­bourne City mov­ing three points clear in sec­ond after beat­ing Sydney FC 2-0.
