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.

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.
