Wellington Phoenix coach Ufuk Talay praised goalkeeper Oli Sail for helping to earn his battle-weary side a 1-1 draw against Sydney FC on Saturday.
The Nix are looking to finish in the top six of the A-League and are now six games unbeaten following the clash at Leichhardt Oval.
The Nix had taken the lead in the first half through striker David Ball but Sydney came fighting back after the break with substitute Bobo levelling matters.
Wellington did have Sail to thank for keeping them in the game though as he pulled off a number of great saves to keep Steve Corica's men out.
Talay reveals Reds turning point
Sail saved the best until last when pulling off a fine save to deny Bobo scoring a winner deep in stoppage time and Talay had nothing but praise for his keeper.
"Obviously this is our fifth game in 14 days so I think the boys put in a very good shift and look 1-1 is a fair result at the end of the day," Talay told reporters after the game.
"Oli made some spectacular saves today to keep us in the game and maybe we could have even won it in the last minute with Gael (Sandoval) in that transition moment."
After such a hectic schedule Wellington now get the chance for some much-needed rest before they play Western Sydney Wanderers next Sunday and Talay will take full advantage of the break.
"We’ll give the boys a couple of days off to refresh their minds and their bodies and then we’ll come back in and we’ve got a very important game on the weekend against Western Sydney," he adde. "These next couple of days are very important for the boys to relax."
