Central Coast Mariners Form


The Mariners have steadied the ship after a shaky few weeks.

Striker Matt Simon got his side over the line against the Jets in Newcastle when he tucked away his 54th minute penalty. It was a fiery and scrappy contest between the two rivals, with the visitors hanging on to record a must needed win. 

A controversial 1-0 loss against league leaders Melbourne City followed. The Mariners had a 90th minute penalty overturned after the referee consulted with the VAR. 

But they managed to bounce back in style, coming from behind to defeat Macarthur 2-1. Defender Jack Clisby equalised in the 31st minute before midfielder Daniel De Silva gave his side the lead with a 55th minute goal.

Newcastle Jets Form


Newcastle sit dead last in the league after a 14 match winless run. 

The Jets managed to hold reigning champions Sydney FC to a 1-1 draw at home. The home side opened the scoring through striker Roy O’Donovan before defender Nigel Boogard’s own goal brought the Sky Blues level. 

A narrow 1-0 defeat against the Mariners followed at home with the visitors converting a 54th minute penalty. 

Newcastle then travelled to Brisbane where they were left ruing missed opportunities in the 2-1 defeat. After conceding early, the Jets equalised after Roar midfielder James O’Shea netted an own goal.

The Brisbane midfielder would then go on to score the winning goal for his side.
