Sydney FC sit pretty at the top of the A-League at present as they have a six-point gap over their nearest rivals Newcastle Jets. Graham Arnold’s men have not lost in their last 10 league outings and there is little reason to suggest that Central Coast Mariners will put a stop to that streak this weekend.

October 2016 saw Sydney FC record a comfortable 4-0 win over Central Coast Mariners in front of their own fans. Their talisman Bobo was once again on the scoresheet but Filip Holosko would earn the majority of the plaudits as his brace of goals undoubtedly played a huge part in his side’s win as Sydney showed their dominance throughout.
