Wellington Phoenix coach Ricki Herbert's reserving special praise for the soon-to-retire Tim Brown after his side claimed a 3-2 victory over Sydney FC in their A-League elimination final.
Brown scored the side's first goal in the 47th minute before a run of goals saw scores level at 2-2 with five minutes to play.
Striker Paul Ifill then slotted home the winner from the penalty spot to extend the Phoenix's season.

He says he's been a great servant for the team and showed again an outstanding performance.
The Phoenix will meet either the Melbourne Heart or Perth Glory next weekend in the minor semi final.
