7th plays host to 8th in the A-League this weekend and there is not a lot to choose between these two sides at present, although the Mariners have the highly unwanted record of having not won any of their last eight league outings. There is only goal difference separating them and Brisbane Roar in the table and with that in mind all signs point to a draw this weekend.

The Central Coast Mariners have not beaten Brisbane Roar in their last 10 attempts, and you must go back to April 2014 for their last success in this fixture. That was a win that came at Central Coast Stadium and came courtesy of goals from Nick Fitzgerald and Anthony Caceres.
