Perth Glory v Central Coast Mariners: match preview
Perth Glory are chasing back-to-back wins when they host Central Coast Mariners in the final game of Round 4 on Sunday evening.
Tony Popovic’s troops overcame Wellington Phoenix 2-1 last Sunday, with striker Bruno Fornaroli netting his first goal for the club.
The Fornaroli, Castro and Ikonomidis combination is starting to spark up, which isn’t good news for the winless Mariners.
While Central Coast have had a full two weeks to prepare for this clash after a bye last weekend, they have never enjoyed the trip west, and have won just one of their last 14 games on the road.
