Late goals from James Troisi and substitute Kosta Barbarouses helped Melbourne Victory move up to third in the Australian A-League following a 3-1 win over Central Coast Mariners.

Despite taking the lead just after the half hour mark through James Jeggo, it appeared Melbourne would have to settle for a point after they were pegged back by Zachery Anderson's strike after 63 minutes.

But Troisi struck from the penalty spot in the 77th minute before Barbarouses struck in the last minute to seal victory for the home side.
