The Mariners have been one of the most consistent teams lately in the Australian top flight, and they have used this to build some serious momentum.

As things stand, they are going after a spot in the top-half. They do need a surplus of five points to do that, but it also needs to be mentioned that they have three fixtures in hand.

Meanwhile, Wellington have been struggling quite a bit lately in posting points on the board, and they have been in turmoil with frequent losses. Most importantly, on the road, they have been a mess for the past several weeks.

By the looks of things, expect a win for Central Coast this Tuesday.
