Heart upset Mariners

6:41 am on 27 February 2012

The A-league football leaders Central Coast Mariners added to their miserable recent run when they failed to convert a penalty and lost 1-nil yesterday to Melbourne Heart.

Central Coast have scored only four points in their five games, and after leading by 11 points just over three weeks ago, they now lead the reigning champions Brisbane Roar by just three points.

The Wellington Phoenix, 1-nil winners over Sydney at the weekend, remain third, eight points behind Central Coast.
