PREDICTION
Western Sydney Wanderers come into this game not having won any of their last four league outings, however things could be a lot worse and they are for the Central Coast Mariners. That is because they have failed to win any of their last nine league matches, a run of form that subsequently sees them lie second-bottom in the table at present. One of these two teams in action on Sunday could find a long overdue victory, with the form book suggesting it will be the visitors.

MEMORABLE MEETING
The last time these two sides met was in December 2017 it was something of an ill-tempered encounter, especially for the Central Coast Mariners. They may well have been at home against the Wanderers, but they failed to take advantage of this as they were beaten 2-0. Not only that but they ended the game with just nine men after red cards were shown to both Wout Brama and Jake McGing.
