Central Coast Mariners Preview – Can Mariners stop the rot?

It’s been a wretched season for Friday evening’s hosts, Central Coast Mariners, as they sit rock-bottom of the A-League having suffered a miserable run of 11 defeats on the trot, but they do have this local derby against Newcastle Jets to look forward to as the hosts seek a way out of their current predicament.

Local derbies can often be a leveller and Central Coast will be desperate to stop the rot against their closest rivals here, but five defeats on the trot at home doesn’t bode well for The Mariners following losses on home turf to Brisbane Roar, Western Sydney Wanderers, Sydney FC, Wellington Phoenix and Melbourne City.

However, The Mariners are capable of scoring goals and the hosts have failed to score in just three of their 11 home matches to date which have also yielded three goals or more in eight of these 11 matches at the Bluetongue Stadium, while five of their last seven meeting against The Jets have also produced three goals or more.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Newcastle Jets Preview – Can Newcastle grab derby joy?

Newcastle Jets made a triumphant return to A-League action with their recent 2-1 win away from home against the current A-League leaders, Sydney FC, and the visitors will hit the road again, albeit for an hour’s journey, to face their F3 rivals, Central Coast Mariners on Friday night, looking to post back-to-back wins.

That win in Sydney became Newcastle’s fourth win in five matches and has helped lift The Jets to within three points of Adelaide United and the top six, so there’s plenty of incentive for Newcastle to press for another three points here, not least because of the nature of this derby.

However, a straight win for The jets here looks far from guaranteed as the visitors have picked up just two wins on the road from their last nine matches within an unconvincing away record of 3-2-7 13/24, but goals again looks appealing here as seven of Newcastle’s 12 away matches have also produced three goals or more.
