Central Coast Mariners Form


While the Mariners are unbeaten in four of their last five matches, they are also winless in their last three. 

A 90th minute penalty converted by veteran Matt Simon saw Central Coast rescue a point in a 2-2 draw with Perth Glory. 

The Mariners were then outplayed by the league’s new title favourites Melbourne City 2-0 away from home, before being held to a 1-1 draw against cellar dwellers Melbourne Victory. 

Central Coast were forced to come from behind against the Victory with midfielder Marco Urena scoring the equaliser just before half-time.

Adelaide United Form


Confidence is high at Adelaide United after six straight wins. 

The Reds have been the league’s high-scorers in recent weeks with several dominant displays up front. 

A double from captain Stefan Mauk and a debut goal from forward Kusini Yengi saw the Reds come from behind to defeat Melbourne Victory 3-1. 

A 4-1 win against the Jets followed with Yengi and Mauk scoring again, while wingers Ben Halloran and Craig Goodwin also contributed to the scoresheet. 

Adelaide then took down reigning champions Sydney FC in a tense 1-0 win. Goodwin’s late penalty may have stolen the points but it was goalkeeper Joe Gauci who received all the plaudits with several terrific saves.

Adelaide United Injuries & Team News


First-choice goalkeeper James Delianov is still sidelined due to a hamstring injury, leaving Gauci in goals for another few weeks.

Striker Mohamed Toure will also miss due to hamstring issues, while midfielders Ryan Kitto and Nathan Konstandopoulos are out with hamstring and knee injuries respectively.
