Alarm bells aren't ringing at the Wellington Phoenix yet, despite their third loss on end and ninth place on the A-League soccer table.Wellington improved hugely from last week's dismal showing against Melbourne Victory, when a 3-2 win flattered the Phoenix after a horror first half.But despite the improved effort, they were still beaten 1-0 by Central Coast Mariners at Westpac Stadium on Sunday and have just one win from six matches.Daniel McBreen's 69th-minute strike was set up by Tom Rogic's superb run and pinpoint cross into the middle.Although the Phoenix lifted, they couldn't break through the Mariners' miserly defence that has conceded only four goals in six games.Coach Ricki Herbert says there's no need to panic: "It's been a disappointing three weeks, we're certainly not shying away from that."But we're there or thereabouts. There's enough in the side to rebound back, we've just got to keep working hard."Wellington have plenty of experience in players like captain Andrew Durante, Ben Sigmund, Manny Muscat and Paul Ifill to regain their winning touch, but Herbert says the youngsters in the squad are equally important.He pointed to the impact 19-year-old Louis Fenton, a regular starter after snaring one of the Phoenix's three youth contracts, and Waikato 18-year-old Tyler Boyd, who has improved with every moment of match time."Like I said at the start of the year, I'm not going to pull back from playing them," he said."Our young players are going to be really important for us in 12 months..."The future's going to be different for us, but the immediate is to try and maximise as much as we can now out of the group we've got."It's a slightly new look, different team and we'll keep working hard with the personnel we've got."
