Wellington Phoenix coach Ufuk Talay believes his side are still capable of snatching a place in the finals despite suffering heavy defeats in the last two games.
The Nix are priced at 6/4 to make the top six and are still in the mix despite suffering two heavy defeats against Melbourne City and Central Coast Mariners.
Wellington lost 6-0 against City and then 5-0 against the Mariners but Talay refuses to be downbeat and is confident they can bounce back.
It will not be easy though as they face a tough game next up against second-placed Western United.
"There were a few videos that we showed to the players and I think it was a little bit of an eye opener," Talay said. "We spoke about where we're at as a group and what we need to do to get out of this."
Wellington currently sit in seventh place and do have games in hand on the sides above them so Talay knows what they have to do.
"I think 37 points will get us into the top six. I think it's three wins and a draw we need to get us in that position," he said.
"We need to get a decent result against Western United and a decent result against Perth and then we're looking forward to those two games back at home."
Meanwhile Western boss John Aloisi has warned his side against complacency and says the Nix will be on a mission to bounce back.
