A-League sneak peek - Round 22
On Saturday Wellington Phoenix and Brisbane Roar face off at Westpac Stadium with Brisbane desperate to make amends following their 5-1 loss to Gold Coast United. Wellington will be looking to continue their impeccable Westpac Stadium form that has seen them unbeaten at the Wellington ground this season.
In Gosford the Mariners take on North Queensland Fury in what could be a make or break game for both sides. Sitting in 7th and 8th respectively a win could propel one team into serious finals contention while another loss will leave Central Coast languishing with six losses in a row while a loss for either side will result in the loser being the first team to record 10 losses this Hyundai A-League season.
Late Saturday, Adelaide United visit Skilled Park to take on Gold Coast United. The Reds need to make a move now if they are going to make a late push for the finals and find the form to take them into the AFC Champions League. Gold Coast however will be a tough task, and with the fans starting to make their presence felt in Robina, Adelaide will have a battle on their hands to get the three vital points on offer.
On Sunday, Newcastle Jets host Melbourne Victory and Perth Glory welcome the visit of top-of-the-table Sydney FC in matches that see four of the top 5 teams meet in 180 minutes of football that will go a long way in deciding season 5 of the Hyundai A-League.
