Phoenix Petroleum takes on back-to-the-wall NLEX as the Fuel Masters try to go above the .500 mark again and stick close with the frontrunners heading into the homestretch of the PBA Philippine Cup eliminations at the Cuneta Astrodome Wednesday.

The Fuel Masters seek a share of fourth place with the Blackwater Elite while the Road Warriors fight for life as they clash at 7:00 p.m.

Heading to the match, coach Ariel Vanguardia and his troops are in a heavy five-way logjam at fifth place with elite teams Alaska, Barangay Ginebra, Star and TNT KaTropa, having dropped their last game against
Rain or Shine.

Vanguardia rued engaging the E-Painters in a shootout instead of dragging them in a defensive battle.

And they could well be in for another tough battle as they play an NLEX squad that will be fighting for survival. –
