The A-League returns to the fold with another set of fixtures this weekend as Central Coast Mariners lock horns with Macarthur FC at the Central Coast Stadium on Monday. Both teams have been impressive this season and have a point to prove in this game.

Macarthur FC are in second place in the league table and have made an excellent start to their first-ever A-League campaign. The Bulls edged Sydney FC to a 1-0 victory in their previous game and will be confident ahead of this fixture.

Central Coast Mariners have been exceptional this season and find themselves at the top of the A-League standings. The Mariners edged Perth Glory to a 2-1 victory last week and will want to put in a similar performance in this match.
