FIJIAN wonder boy Roy Krishna struck twice as his Wellington Phoenix football side stepped up their Hyundai A-League preparations with a 5-0 victory over Napier City Rovers yesterday.

Krishna put the finishing touch on triallist Yoo Byung Soo’s 28th minute delivery, before Yoo added the third goal four minutes later from Tom Doyle’s cross.

Doyle turned from provider to finisher on the stroke of half-time, shooting across goal to put the result beyond doubt, while Krishna converted from the penalty spot on 71 minutes to make it 5-0.

Next up for Phoenix is a match against at Central League select in Raumati Beach next Saturday 1 September, before a 10-day intensive closed-door training camp in Australia as preparations ramp up ahead of the 2018-19 season.
