Melbourne City v Western Sydney Wanderers
Tuesday, 7:50pm (AEDT)
Melbourne City are at risk of slipping out of the top four following a goalless home draw against Perth Glory in which they struggled to issue the kind of stirring response that was sought in the wake of the shock loss to Central Coast Mariners.
Goals continue to be a problem in Bruno Fornaroli's ongoing absence, although there should be more joy to be found going forward at AAMI Park on Tuesday night.
Western Sydney lost 2-1 at home to Adelaide United last time out and have conceded 13 times throughout a five-match losing streak.
That run was started by a 2-0 defeat to City, a result that must surely be reversed if Wanderers are to begin staging an unlikely assault on the top six.

Round 15: Melbourne City v Western Sydney Wanderers
Wellington Phoenix v Sydney FC
Wednesday, 5:35pm (AEDT)
The match of the round sees two in-form teams go head to head in a mouth-watering encounter at Westpac Stadium.
Sydney FC have compiled a strong sequence of results since being stunned 3-1 by Mark Rudan's men in December but will undoubtedly still be eager to exact revenge.
That will be easier said than done against a Wellington side which has certainly shown their Jubilee Stadium triumph to be no fluke.
They were excellent during the rollercoaster 3-3 draw at Melbourne Victory, have not lost in nine outings and will be confident of closing to within three points of the third-placed Sky Blues.

Round 15: Wellington Phoenix v Sydney FC
Newcastle Jets v Central Coast Mariners
Wednesday, 7:50pm (AEDT)
The table might not have changed much but the mood around the two F3 Derby combatants has certainly turned since their last meeting on December 23.
Newcastle Jets have not won since their come-from-behind victory in that match, leaving them 10 points adrift of the Finals Series place.
Ernie Merrick remains confident a top-six spot will be secured before the end of the campaign but an improving Central Coast Mariners will be keen to cruel those chances.
Mike Mulvey's troops, who are six points shy of their rivals, were unfortunate not to emerge with a second straight Hyundai A-League win when they drew 1-1 with Brisbane Roar on Sunday.
How to watch: Don't miss the F3 Derby during Wednesday night's triple-header on FOX SPORTS 505. The game gets underway at 7:50pm (AEDT) and can be streamed via the MyFootball Live App, which is live, fast and data-free for Telstra mobile customers.
Round 15: Newcastle Jets v Central Coast Mariners
Perth Glory v Adelaide United
Wednesday, 10pm (AEDT)
Wednesday night's triple treat concludes with an intriguing battle in the west.
Perth Glory were held scoreless for the first time this term in Round 14 and Tony Popovic is sure to expect a statement back on home soil.
Adelaide United are the team in the crosshairs but Marco Kurz's side are no pushovers and have dropped just one of their past six matches, winning three of the last five.
Craig Goodwin assisted one and scored the other away to Wanderers last time out; with seven goals in his 14 league appearances this term, Perth can ill afford to relax.
