Show Preview

Melbourne Victory host Central Coast Mariners at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium for your Monday night football. Join The Roar for live scores from 7:30pm (AEST).

Two sides stuck to the bottom of the ladder with little left to play for this season clash tonight. Both are coming off negative results in their most recent matches. The Mariners scored first – albeit a goal that would’ve been ruled out had VAR been in place – and lead Western Sydney for 29 minutes before a late Simon Cox header denied them all three points, while Victory went down to Brisbane Roar 2-1.

Since coming back from the break, the Mariners are sporting a 0-2-1 record. It hasn’t been a disastrous return from them, and they did look decent in patches against the Wanderers, but it’s still another three games without a win and 13 in total for Alen Stajcic’s side. The once-proud club has managed just four wins all year and they will see this clash as an opportunity to ensure they notch at least one more before the season is out.

Coming back from the COVID break was never going to be easy for the Victory following another coaching departure as well as the loss of star striker Ola Toivonen.

“I’m pleased with the way that this club and the players are showing an effort and an enthusiasm,” interim coach Grant Brenber told reporters in his post-game press conference following their defeat to Western United.

Under the circumstances, they have put in two reasonable performances in losses to sides that will almost definitely both be playing finals football. Tonight, however, is easily their biggest opportunity to add to their paltry five wins on the season.

Expect to again see plenty of youth in both lineups. With nothing to play for except pride, both coaches have the ability to experiment and provide minutes to youngsters eager to prove themselves.
