Team Wellington still have work to do to close the gap to Auckland City

Team Wellington need to continue to improve if they are to compete with Auckland City on a regular basis.

Progress has been made under coach Jose Figueira this season, with a style of football developed which could see them able to foot it with the national league standard bearers more often.

But their record against Auckland this season was four losses and one win (2-1 in the Stirling Sports Premiership final), with an aggregate score of 13-3.
