CCM vs SYD Dream11: Central Coast Mariners’ poor run of form finally cost them top spot on the A-League ladder as they lost to Western United last time out. They have now won just one of their last six matches and that has allowed Melbourne City to usurp them. The Mariners now face another tough contest as they host Sydney, a side with no defeat in their last four. It is also just one loss in nine matches for the defending champions and the away side should be able to improve on that record by claiming another positive result in this one.
