Sydney FC take on the Central Coast Mariners on Friday night at Netsrata Jubilee Stadium (kick off 7:00 AEDT), in their A-League Matchweek 5 clash.
Scroll down and check out all the info you need for the game, including key timings, COVID-19 safety measures and parking and public transport information.
The Sky Blues come up against an in-form Mariners side who have only dropped points once this season. The Gosford club have conceded only the one goal from their three opening matches and will bring a physical style of play to Kogarah for the clash.
Sydney FC are similarly undefeated to start Season 2020/21, and will be looking to build on a promising first half display against the Wanderers last week.
Head Coach Steve Corica's men emerged winners in their last encounter at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium, with a 5th minute Kosta Barbarouses strike enough to seal the three points.
