Due to torrential rain in Brisbane, the match was called off in the 73rd minute, with the three points handed to Wellington, who were leading 2-1 at the time thanks to goals from Michael McGlinchey and Nathan Burns.
The victory was the Phoenix’s first ever over the Roar at Suncorp Stadium, and though Merrick believed his players had done enough to deserve it, he said the atmosphere in the dressing room was a strange one.

“The boys aren’t celebrating.
“They do a team song after every win, there was no celebration.
“They understand, it’s a tough way to win a game, those are the rules though.”
Merrick said he had never experienced a situation before where the game was called off but the result stood.
“30 years of coaching, 200 A-League games, it was controversial, but they’re the rules,” he said.
“I don’t think anyone is happy but the weather is quite incredible.
“It’s a bit like Scotland, only it’s more horizontal in Scotland and a bit colder.”
The Scotland-born manager praised the performance of his men, who now sit four points clear at the top of the A-League table.
