Victory share points with Mariners

1:02 pm on 19 November 2010

An embarrassing Melbourne Victory defensive mix-up gifted Central Coast Mariners a 2-2 draw in Melbourne, consigning last year's grand finalists to a tough battle for an A-League finals berth.

Goalkeeper Michael Petkovic's 78th minute own goal from a corner gave the Mariners a point in a fiery encounter in front of the Victory's worst ever A-League crowd.

The Victory remain in the top six, while the Mariners hold on to third place.
