Melbourne Heart v Gold Coast United

Gold Coast United will be without controversial coach Miron Bleigberg for their week 20 clash against Melbourne Heart on Friday night. United’s billionaire owner Clive Palmer suspended Bleiberg after comments surrounding the appointment of 17-year-old Mitch Cooper as Captain.

Gold Coast’s worries extend far further than off the pitch, having won only three A-League games this season to sit well entrenched on the bottom of the A-League ladder. Melbourne Heart have had an inconsistent season and haven’t produced when required however unlike the Coast, they still have a chance of featuring in the finals.

The two clubs met in week six of competition and on that occasion the Heart capitalised on an early goal to Matt Thompson and went on to win the match 2-1 .
