Bernie Ibini-Isei's sixth goal of the A-League season earned Central Coast Mariners a dramatic 1-0 elimination final victory over Adelaide United in Gosford.

Ibini-Isei's match-winning goal in the 67th minute was expertly set up by Mitchell Duke while Adelaide went close to scoring through Joshua Rose and substitute Bruce Djite.

The Mariners will now play Western Sydney Wanderers for a place in the grand final - the two clubs' third finals meeting in 12 months - while Adelaide will be left to ponder what might have been.
