HYUNDAI A-League football returns to Gosford on Thursday evening with the Central Coast Mariners hosting Wellington Phoenix at Bluetongue Stadium. Kick-off is 7:00pm.

Graham Arnold-s team have already played against Ricki Herbert-s side twice this campaign. Both games were in New Zealand at Wellington-s Westpac Stadium, with the yellow and navy claiming a 1-0 win across the Tasman Sea in round 6, before the two teams settled for a 1-1 draw at the ‘Cake Tin- in round 12.

On Friday, the Mariners played Brisbane Roar at Suncorp Stadium, securing a 2-2 draw with Mike Mulvey-s men. Goals to midfield whiz Michael McGlinchey and the competition-s top marksman, Daniel McBreen, helped Central Coast claim a valuable point away from home.

Meanwhile, Phoenix clinched their first win in six matches when they defeated Perth Glory 1-0 at Eden Park, Auckland on Saturday; Jeremy Brockie-s first half header enough to move to the team from the Kiwi capital off the foot of the Hyundai A-League ladder.

Central Coast will be aiming to extend their unbeaten run at Gosford-s Bluetongue Stadium to nine matches when they play the ‘Nix on Thursday, and in so doing keep their undefeated run in 2013 alive.

Get to the Stadium and help the boys defend Fortress Bluetongue!
