Matchweek 8 preview: Wellington Phoenix v Central Coast Mariners

Wellington Phoenix host Central Coast Mariners at WIN Stadium on Sunday afternoon, intent on defeating the league-leaders for the second time this season.

The Phoenix took all three points when the two sides met in Matchweek 6. A late Jaushua Sotirio strike gave Ufuk Talay's side a 2-1 victory - Wellington's only win to date in the 2020/21 A-League campaign.

The Mariners have notched two wins on the trot since falling to the Phoenix, twice coming from behind to clinch 3-2 comeback victories over both Melbourne City and Western United at Central Coast Stadium.

If Alen Stajcic can mastermind a third win on the bounce his Mariners outfit will consolidate their position on top of the A-League table.

The Phoenix, meanwhile, need all three points to keep in touch with the top six. With four points on the board Wellington are currently level with Melbourne Victory at the foot of the table, five points behind Perth Glory in sixth.
