A mere three points separate Central Coast Mariners and Brisbane Roar on the A-League table as they battle for finals relevance tonight in Gosford. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog from 5pm (AEDT).

Robbie Fowler’s men head south on a four-game unbeaten run – their best of this campaign – and will be aiming to extend that tomorrow. They impressively saw off the in-form Wellington Phoenix last weekend, and Fowler is spoilt for choice when it comes to his attacking selections to face the Mariners. New recruit Scott McDonald made his debut from the bench against the Phoenix and looked solid, and it was Dylan Wenzel-Halls who arrived as a substitute to score the winner.

After their epic comeback win over Melbourne Victory two rounds ago it was of great disappointment to the Mariners when they succumbed to a thumping defeat by Western United in the following match – an unfortunate habit of the side, having lost the match proceeding each of their four wins this season.

If Central Coast are to rise away from the bottom of the table, clearly Alen Stajcic needs greater consistency from his players. They were wasteful in front of goal against United, so it will be interesting to see if Stajcic perseveres with Jordan Murray and Jair as his leading men against Roar.

A win would also bring the Mariners level on points with their opponents, albeit behind on goal difference. The Roar, however, will be confident about their chances of returning to Queensland with at least one point.

Catch all the action from Gosford with The Roar’s live coverage starting from 5pm (AEDT).
