Matchweek 6 preview: Central Coast Mariners v Wellington Phoenix

Central Coast Mariners head into Matchweek 6 intent on building on a stellar start to the 2020/21 A-League campaign with another positive result against Wellington Phoenix at Central Coast Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

It's first against last in Gosford but the Phoenix have been far better than their position on the table suggests, suffering two one-goal defeats from three games to begin the 2020/21 season.

Wellington's most recent outing came against Newcastle Jets in Matchweek 5, a 2-1 defeat which continued to frustrate Ufuk Talay's side.

As the Phoenix chase a first win of the campaign the Mariners head into Matchweek 6 leading the pack with three wins from four games, including an impressive 2-0 victory over Champions Sydney FC last time out.

The Mariners' rich supply of exciting young talent has caught the eye so far this season, and Alen Stajcic will be hoping his optimistic Mariners side keep their promising form going against the Phoenix on home soil.
