Manager: Alberto Ferri
Captain: Francisco Moreno Jimenez
Top Scorer: German Cortes Narvaez (5)
Phoenix have had a tough second round that has seen them plumett down the table but has also seen seem achieve some surprising results. Their inconsistency has been their achilles heel and Alberto Ferri is back on the bench. Phoenix played their game in hand as recently as last Wednesday and battled hard for a point against Mons Calpe, though they finished the game with 9 men with former United player Ashley Rodriguez one of those seeing red. That said Phoenix are a tough side to break down and came back from a 2-0 defecit in our game earlier the season.
United come into the game in good form following two good victories in the Rock Cup and the league against Glacis United last time out. All Internationals are back in the fold and the players have worked hard in training knowing the stakes are very high. Baio starts a two match suspension but other than that all other players remain available to Manolo for the match. A rather unsual midday kick off on Easter Monday.
