Melbourne Victory won again and Central Coast Mariners failed to do so once more. Kevin Muscat's side has established itself as a title favourite, while Phil Moss is sure to come under increasing pressure at the helm of the Mariners.

While much of the lead-up to this game has centered on the Mariners moving this from their home ground in Gosford to North Sydney Oval - as well as concerns over the surface expressed by the Big V - this promises to be a fascinating clash of styles on Friday night.
Central Coast Mariners coach, Phil Moss, has downplayed concerns that North Sydney Oval is a risk to player welfare, and says his men won't be looking for excuses when they face an in-form Melbourne Victory on Friday.
We all know it’s not a good idea to get Kevin Muscat angry! But the FFA have done just that and now have a fired-up Melbourne Victory coach on their hands as he declared player welfare was being threatened by playing games on the cricket pitch at North Sydney Oval.
