Looking to extend their buffer in the top half of the A-League standings, Adelaide United will host a struggling Central Coast Mariners on Friday morning.
Starting with the hosts, despite coming off the back of a close-fought defeat last weekend, Adelaide are in the midst of an eye-catching run. In their 16 matches this season, they have recorded eight wins, against eight defeats, scoring 28 and conceding 27 in return. With a points tally of 24, Adelaide open the midweek fixtures in fifth in the A-League standings and holding a three-point buffer from losing their top half status.

In their 16 matches this season, they have recorded just four wins, one draw, and 11 defeats, scoring 17 and conceding 32 in return. Along with only their goal difference keeping them off top spot, it should be noted that Central Coast hold the second-worst defensive record in the division. As for their recent run of results, Friday’s guests have lost their last four matches on the bounce, conceding at least a trio of goals in three of those losses.
