The A-League is back in action with another round of fixtures this weekend as Central Coast Mariners take on Adelaide United on Saturday. Both teams have stepped up this season and will want to win this game.

Central Coast Mariners are in fifth place in the A-League standings and have improved after an indifferent start to their season. The Mariners eased past Newcastle Jets by a 2-0 margin in their previous game and will look to achieve a similar result this weekend.

Adelaide United, on the other hand, are in fourth place in the league table at the moment and have been fairly impressive so far. The home side edged Western United to a 2-1 victory last week and will be confident ahead of this fixture.
