6 min: Oooh! First chance of the game falls to Melling, who cuts inside from the City left and lets fly with a brisk effort that Reddy initially fumbles, but recovers to collect. 4 min: The pitch is half bathed in bright sunshine, making the TV cameraman’s job slightly more difficult than usual, I imagine, given he has to constantly twiddle the contrast knob so we can all see what’s going on. 2 min: Dugandzic looks to play in Melling, who is making his first appearance from the start for City today, as City seek to apply some early pressure.
How on earth did they manage to throw that one away? It was in the bag. They should have won it 3-0 or 4-0, but instead they come away with just a point. Goal: Melbourne City 2-2 Central Coast Mariners90+3 min: Can you believe it? I can’t. I really can’t. The Mariners level right at the death, with the last kick of the game! It’s the captain Hutchinson who finds the back of the net with a thunderous low drive from 25 yards out! Redmayne is left sprawling, City players are dejected and the Mariners celebrate an unlikely point! 90 min: Three minutes of added time is signalled moments before Duff spins on a sixpence down on the byline and makes inroads into the box.
22 min: Melling gets the crowd all excited as the ball rolls into his path and he stabs an off-balance effort wide of the post. What he didn’t realise (or maybe he did and was just being selfish) was that Duff was just outside him in a far better position. The excitement evaporates. 19 min: Here come City though, with Williams who fires in a rather too well-struck cross towards the onrushing Duff, and the Irishman can’t control it and the ball pings off his shin and out of play. A flicker of a chance only. 17 min: Since the goal went in, it’s been all Mariners.
