Wellington Phoenix coach Mark Rudan has hit out at the club’s decision to host a game in Campbelltown, saying the club’s hierarchy had “no confidence” in having a strong season.
The Phoenix lost 1-0 to Sydney FC at Campbelltown Sports Stadium on Saturday after being forced to move their home A-League fixture due to the Maori Kapa Haka festival.
At the time of the decision, Wellington general manager David Dome said that none of the home alternatives would meet their average attendance metric.
The loss means the sixth-placed Phoenix sit just six points clear of Newcastle with seven games remaining in the season.
