The Central Coast won their home fixture against Newcastle 3-1 back in November, which was their first win of the season and spark a run of 12 unbeaten games which brought the Mariners season back to life after a 4 week grand final hangover.

The Mariners will be too defensively sound for Newcastle to compete with the league’s most stingy backline. Beyond Apostolos Stamatelopoulos, the Jets do not pose enough threat to be able to get through the Mariners defenders, let alone sneak anything through Danny Vukovic in goal.

I predict a Mariners win and will lay heavy on the Jets scoring Under 1.5 goals in the match.

  • The Central Coast has won the last 3 matches against Newcastle.
  • The Central Coast has won the last 3 matches against Newcastle at McDonald Jones Stadium.
  • Newcastle has failed to score more than 1 goal in their last 3 matches against the Central Coast.
  • The Central Coast has held a clean sheet in 5 of their last 6 matches.

Newcastle Jets Form & Team News


Apostolos Stamatelopoulos saved the day in Newcastle once again with the league’s leading goalscorer equalising to 2-2 from the penalty spot against Macarthur FC, in the 89th minute of the match. The Jets were also down 1-0 but Archie Goodwin brought them back to 1-1 just minutes after. 


Each and every point is vital for Newcastle who have fallen to second last in the league conceding 19 goals in 9 matches.

Central Coast Mariners Form & Team News


The Central Coast defence continues to impress this season as goalkeeper Danny Vukovic holds his eighth clean sheet of the season and fifth in his last six games, as the Mariners shut out the Melbourne Victory 1-0.

The Mariners are vastly becoming favourites to defend their A-League title with an almost flawless run since week 5 of the season losing just once in fifteen games. 

As mentioned, their defence has been the key to their success, conceding an average of just 0.7 goals against per game in their last 10 matches.
