WST vs WEL Dream11: Western United responded to their loss to Wellington Phoenix by overcoming Central Coast Mariners in a shock victory at the weekend, making it three wins from their last four matches. They will hope to build on that as they take on Phoenix for the second time in quick succession but they too will be confident having made it back-to-back successes by defeating Perth Glory last time out. This game could go either way and it is a difficult one to call but with it being rare that either side fails to score, there should be goals at either end in this one.
