Wellington Phoenix welcomes Central Coast Mariners to the Wellington Regional Stadium. The home side were forced to drop points against Adelaide United last weekend.
Central Coast Mariners, on the other hand, were not in action last weekend as the home game with Newcastle Jets was cancelled due to a heavy downpour.

Head coach Ufuk Talay says he was happy with the draw against Adelaide United last weekend but aims for his first three points.
