Victory dominant in 4-1 win over Mariners

The result sees Victory seven points behind league leaders Sydney FC with a game in hand and the Mariners in ninth on a four-game losing streak.

"The weather wasn't conducive to the way that we like to play, but we still persisted," Muscat said of the oppressive conditions.

"We had to alter things and I thought we were clinical and well worth the three points.

"If I can allow myself to be disappointed it was that late goal (conceded) which was just sloppiness."

Central Coast coach Paul Okon felt his side created chances in the second half but bemoaned the costly first-half lapse.

"We should never have gone in a goal behind, we gave away a cheap goal, which ... puts you on the back foot," Okon said.

"It's happened far too many times this season.

"Cheap goals ... it's an area that we must improve in."
