Our team-by-team guide to the new season kicks off with the four sides least likely to make the finals this year
Wellington, Central Coast, Adelaide and Newcastle – if you support any of these teams you probably think what follows is a stitch-up or further evidence of some kind of bias. And the truth is, they could all equally go on to make the top four; this is Australian football we’re talking about after all, a universe about as reliable as a Trump administration spokesperson.
Yet there also happens to be some logic behind the decision to include them. This quartet occupied the bottom four spots on last year’s ladder, three of them have been hanging around there for the past two seasons, a pair of them for the last three years, and in the case of the Jets, seven seasons on the trot. So, while each can look forward to improved efforts, they still have plenty of ground to make up on sides above them.

- Sydney FC beat Newcastle 2-0 at Allianz Stadium
- Adelaide FC and Western Sydney Wanderers drew 2-2 at Coopers Stadium
A-League premiers Sydney FC amassed the greatest points tally in the competition’s history after a final-round 2-0 win over Newcastle on Saturday. But it has come at a cost to the Sky Blues, after goal scorer and standout Milos Ninkovic limped off the Allianz Stadium pitch after a sliding tackle by Ben Kantarovski.
Ninkovic’s 56th-minute goal and skipper Alex Brosque’s 87th-minute effort took Sydney to 66 points from 27 games, one point more than the previous mark of 65 set by Ange Postecoglou’s brilliant 2010-11 Brisbane side over a 30-game season.

Adelaide United coach Guillermo Amor has refused to get carried away after the Reds’ stunning 3-1 Asian Champions League win over Jeju United. Tuesday night’s victory in South Korea, coupled with Gamba Osaka’s 3-0 loss to undefeated Group H leader Jiangsu Suning, saw the Reds climb off the bottom of the table and move into second place with four points.

- New technology to be introduced to top-tier football in Australia
- Players effectively told to ignore video reviews
A-League players will be shown a yellow card if they urge referees to video review a decision once the technology comes into play from Friday night’s Melbourne City-Adelaide match.
Australia’s elite competition will become the first top-tier league in the world to use the technology and Adelaide defender Michael Marrone says players have been warned about how they should react to it.

- Adelaide United 1-1 Perth Glory at Coopers Stadium
- ‘Yeah, it’s a pen,’ says Kenny Lowe as Castro penalty riles Adelaide fans
Perth Glory’s Diego Castro has kept his A-League side’s top-four ambitions flickering with a stage-dive penalty in a 1-1 away draw with Adelaide United. Castro scored after earning a penalty in an act which riled Adelaide and their parochial home crowd at Coopers Stadium on Friday night.
Perth remain fifth, three points shy of fourth-placed Brisbane and third-placed Melbourne City ahead of weekend fixtures. After United’s Dylan McGowan headed the home side to the lead, Castro equalised having collapsed as a result of slight contact from the Reds defender.

Brisbane sharpshooter Jamie Maclaren delivered a timely reminder of his quality to Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou with an A-League wonder-goal to sink Melbourne Victory and deliver the Premiers Plate to Sydney FC. Brisbane’s 1-0 win confirms the Sky Blues’ first silverware in seven years as the runaway leaders enter Sunday’s clash with Perth 11 points ahead of second-placed Victory with three rounds to play.

- Wellington Phoenix 3-3 Perth Glory
It was a new night but the same old struggles for Western Sydney, whose A-League finals ambitions are no healthier after they were held to a goalless draw by lowly Adelaide. A highly contentious disallowed goal denied the Wanderers a win they so sorely craved after Tuesday night’s 5-1 Asian Champions League disembowelling by Shanghai SIPG, and leaves their top-six spot at risk of being snatched away by Newcastle.

A-League should be gearing up for all-action climax to the season, but the absence of hype is demoralising and momentum is being lost
Living near Australia’s east coast, the first thing I do in a morning is pour myself a steaming hot mug of bias. This fuels the daily search for A-League news, which consists of an exhaustive trawl through sources from Victoria all the way to New South Wales. But today, to my surprise, I was confronted by a disturbance in the force, the unavoidable presence of Perth Glory.
Under the cloak of west coast anonymity Glory have won four of their past six matches to move level on points with fourth-placed Melbourne City, just two behind next week’s visitors to nib Stadium and occupants of the third and final Asian Champions League qualification spot, Brisbane Roar. During this run Glory have scored at least twice in every match, culminating in the season’s biggest shellacking on Friday night.

- Perth Glory 5-0 Adelaide United at Coopers Stadium
- Diego Castro pilots thrashing with two-goal performance
Perth Glory maestro Diego Castro orchestrated a 5-0 belting of a demoralised Adelaide United in Friday night’s A-League match. Castro scored two goals, set up another for Andy Keogh and featured in the lead-up to Adam Taggart’s score as Perth climbed to fourth spot.
Adelaide can’t slip any lower on the ladder – they’re dead last – but they plunged to fresh, dark depths in a ramshackle display at Coopers Stadium. The loss was Adelaide’s biggest on home soil, eclipsing their 0-4 result just seven weeks ago against Sydney FC.

- Central Coast Mariners 2-1 Adelaide United
- Mariners move to within five points of place in top six
Central Coast secured their first back-to-back A-League wins in nearly three years, seeing off Adelaide United 2-1 to defibrillate their slender finals aspirations. Fabio Ferreira scored against his former club in a hot and sticky Canberra on Sunday, before Kwabena Appiah netted his first A-League goal to lift the Mariners within five points of sixth-placed Western Sydney, who they play next weekend.
Their first set of consecutive wins since April 2014 came despite a slow start in stifling 33-degree heat, countered with drinks breaks both sides of half-time. And though Adelaide had the early run and earned a stoppage-time consolation via a fine finish from teenager Jordan O’Doherty, the reigning champions now lag five points adrift at the foot of the ladder.

Football Federation Australia has rejected Wellington’s claims players suffered heatstroke during Adelaide’s A-League scorcher and defended its call not to push back the mid-afternoon kick-off time.
The controversial issue of heat and player welfare again came under the spotlight on Sunday when the Phoenix and Reds struggled through a sweltering 2-2 draw at Coopers Stadium.
