The first victory in a month was too much for Wellington
Phoenix owner Gareth Morgan, who couldn't help but join in the
Nix fans' unique celebration - stripping.
The Yellow Fever traditionally remove their shirts if the
team are winning with 10 minutes left to play.
It's been a long time between celebrations so this was extra
special, coming after a traumatic week that featured the
resignation of long-serving coach Ricki Herbert and a midweek
loss to Newcastle.
But last night, the Phoenix rebounded with a 1-0 win over the
Melbourne Heart at Dunedin's Forsyth Barr Stadium.
