Central Coast Mariners vs Wellington Phoenix Preview & Prediction

Central Coast Mariners and Wellington Phoenix bring contrasting form lines into this A-League Round 6 encounter in Gosford on Monday afternoon.

The Mariners have won three straight games in all competitions and are sitting nicely in fifth spot on the ladder, while the Phoenix have lost their last three A-League matches after previously setting a club-record 13-game unbeaten run.

After exceeding expectations last season to qualify for the finals, many believed the Mariners would find it hard to repeat that success this term, but so far they are looking good.

Central Coast won back-to-back matches 2-0 over Sydney FC and the Wanderers before absolutely crushing APIA Tigers 6-0 in the FFA Cup mid-week to reach the semi-finals.

Meanwhile, Wellington could be in for a long season after once again being forced to base themselves in Wollongong.

Phoenix have lost their last three games and scored just one goal in the process, going down 2-0 to the Wanderers, 4-0 to the Jets and 2-1 to Sydney FC.

Wellington will take confidence from their 2-1 win over the Mariners to start the season and the fact they’re unbeaten in seven of the last eight meetings, but they need considerable improvement if they are to come out on top on Monday.

VERDICT:

The Mariners are flying under the radar, but a combined score of 10-0 across their last three games is proof something is clicking in Gosford under Nick Montgomery.

Wellington haven’t offered much since that opening round win over the Mariners and head into this clash on the back of a three-game losing streak.

Six of the last seven meetings have produced over 2.5 goals, so we’re backing more goals here (Best over 2.5 goals odds $1.75 with Sportsbet), while the Mariners have got to be considered favourites at home.
