MLC vs CCM Dream11: Melbourne City’s four-match winning streak was ended by Wellington Phoenix but the league leaders did at least extend their unbeaten run to nine games. City failed to hold on to the lead as they conceded late on in that clash and they will be eager to make an immediate return to winning ways after that disappointment. They will be confident of doing so as they host Central Coast Mariners who arrive after finally ending their long wait for a win after narrowly overcoming bottom side Newcastle Jets in what was a first success in seven and while the pressure has been lifted following that win, Melbourne are likely to consign them to defeat in this one.
