Central Coast Mariners earned an upset 2 – 0 win over Melbourne City with a Mitch Duke Double in A-League. Duke squeezed between two defenders and slotted a Glen Trifiro through ball past Velaphi from about 15 metres, achieving the first score. He then drilled a fierce shot from the edge of the area past Velaphi and got his second goal in the game. City failed to capitalise on a number of chances either side of the break after this game. Hope Duke to show more excellent performance after breaking his personal drought.
