Perth Glory go in search of their fifth straight win over Central Coast Mariners when the two sides conclude A-League Round 4 action on Sunday.

Glory vs Mariners kicks off at 6.00pm AEDT at nib Stadium. The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports in Australia.

Prediction

Match Preview


Glory are gunning for back-to-back wins for the first time this season and they will be confident of doing so against a Mariners side who has won just one of their last 14 games on the road.

One of just three unbeaten teams across the first three rounds, Perth began their campaign with consecutive 1-1 draws against Brisbane and Western United before claiming all three points across the ditch against Wellington last week.

Bruno Fornaroli netted his first goal for Glory and Chris Ikonomidis scored the second as Perth ran out 2-1 winners, and with Diego Castro linking up with the aforementioned duo, Tony Popovic’s side will surely be there or thereabouts again this season after winning the minor premiership in 2018/19 and losing out in the Grand Final to Sydney.



Meanwhile, it’s tough to see the Mariners doing enough to break into the top six this season, especially with another team in the competition.

Central Coast went down to the Wanderers 2-1 in their opening game and drew 1-1 with Newcastle in the F3 derby before receiving the bye last week. The sample size is small so far, but the Mariners haven’t been impressive to start the season and it’s looking like it could be another disappointing year for the Gosford-based club.

On a four-match losing run to Perth and having suffered defeats in 12 of their last 14 away games, I’m not expecting the Mariners to offer much resistance in this one.

Perth Glory - $1.45
Central Coast Mariners - $7.50
