Unavailable: De Silva (Injured)

Doubtful: Oar (Injured), Rowles (Injured)

MELBOURNE CITY

  • Melbourne City avoided defeat for the third consecutive game in their draw with Western Sydney Wanderers in their most recent game.
  • City have now lost just one of their last five matches and should extend that run even in the absence of a handful of players in this game.
  • Erick Mombaerts will be boosted by the return of suspended duo Rostyn Griffiths and Adrian Luna but Jack Hendry is still absent.

Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Glover; Atkinson, Good, Griffiths, Jamieson; Brillante; Susaeta, Berenguer, Luna, Noone; MacLaren

THE PREDICTION

Central Coast are on an awful run of form having lost their last nine matches in the A-League and they face a tough challenge to end that run as they host Melbourne City. The visitors have lost just one of their last five games and although they only drew last time out, they should be too good here.
