How to watch Sydney FC vs Central Coast Mariners A-League live and match preview
The Mariners will be looking to extend their hold on the second spot when they take on a rejuvenated Sydney FC.
Leading into the clash vs Sydney FC, the Central Coast Mariners have had to settle for just 1 point from their past fortnight, with a 2-2 draw with the Wanderers last week as their most recent result.
The Mariners still sit second on the table though, 2 points clear of third but 5 points adrift of Melbourne City in the top spot.
Breaking a horror run of form, Sydney FC had a road win against the embattled Melbourne Victory last week and remarkably remain in the hunt for finals football.

Sydney FC vs Central Coast Mariners match preview
Sydney remain a dangerous proposition despite a very poor season by their standards. They're only eighth on the ladder leading into this round.
Every now and then, they produce good bursts of football and create plenty of chances.
Last week's win was important for Sydney FC but at the same time, a result against the bottom-placed Melbourne Victory doesn't necessarily indicate a lot.
The Mariners' winning run has dried up in the last fortnight but they are still playing some good football.
The 2 sides last met back in December where the Mariners emerged victorious 2-1.
In a game of trust, you simply fancy the Mariners more at this point and they should be winning this.
