Mariners beat Jets to nicely set up Roar game

11:41 am on 11 December 2011

The Central Coast Mariners have set up a mouthwatering top of the table A-League clash next weekend against reigning champions Brisbane.

The Mariners go into that game top equal with the Roar and the form team after stretching their unbeaten streak to seven matches with a 2-0 home win over fierce rivals Newcastle on Saturday.

But the Roar face the Wellington Phoenix in Dunedin on Wednesday and are on a two-game losing streak after snapping their Australian club record of going undefeated for 36 matches.
