Central Coast Mariners vs Western United Preview & Prediction

Central Coast’s early-season form has taken a tumble as they prepare for the upcoming finals series with their last regular season game against an embattled Western United outfit on Saturday.

The Mariners were flying high at the top of the table a couple of months ago, but they’ve hit a rough patch of form that they are yet to get out of.

Indeed, the Mariners have won just three of their last 14 games and are coming off a last-start 2-0 loss at home to the Newcastle Jets, who are likely to pick up the wooden spoon.

In saying that, Central Coast have managed to win two of their last four fixtures, so if they can emerge victorious in this clash, they will be confident of doing some damage in the finals.

Meanwhile, it’s been a season to forget for Mark Rudan and Western United, with the club absolutely capitulating over the last month or so.

United were well and truly in the mix for a finals spot, but they’ve crashed to seven consecutive defeats and are 10 points off the top six with one game remaining.

United have lost those seven games by an aggregate score of 22-3. It doesn’t get much poorer than that with your season on the line.

VERDICT:

The Mariners are in a rough patch, but they are still miles ahead of United’s current form. Two of the last three meetings have produced over 4.5 goals and with United shipping at the rate they are, we can expect goals again.

We’ll be backing the Mariners at home with plenty of goals to boot (best Mariners H2H odds $1.62 with Neds).
