The drama from the Wanderers continues with more commentary coming out from Marcus Babbel after being demolished by the Jets last week.
Central Coast blew a 2-0 lead to Melbourne Victory on Saturday, going down 3-2 but at least showed some promise for the rest of the season.
Western Sydney has won its last three against Central Coast but it is very hard to back them with any confidence.
The head to head market is probably worth staying out of but this has the makings of a high scoring clash.

Correct Score: Western Sydney Wanderers 2-1 at $7.50
