FourFourTwo's Griffin McMaster cast his eye over the individual performances throughout Sunday's Central Coast-Adelaide United clash in Gosford.
CENTRAL COAST MARINERS
LIAM REDDY – 6
First goal maybe should have made himself bigger by coming at Sanchez. Split decision. Second goal couldn’t do much. Copped a silly yellow at the death.
MICHAEL NEILL – 7
Has been good. Good tackles, good going forward and good passing, player on the up.
JOSHUA ROSE – 5.5
A part of a defence that conceded two at home.
ZACHARY ANDERSON – 5
Second goal queries. Flat.
STORM ROUX – 5
Was a part of the second goal where questions marks will be raised.
ANTHONY CACERES – 5
Didn’t see him only at the end when he nearly had a shot on goal from Vernes’ diag.
NICK FITZGERALD – 5
Tried to get opportunities on goal but couldn’t capitalise.
MATTHEW SIM – 6
Has good versatility but more suited out wide. Can provide for set pieces as well got a shot on target. Otherwise didn’t show a lot.
NICK MONTGOMERY – 5
Defensive duty lacked when Elrich got past him on the second goal. Got sent off. Don’t know why the crowd clapped him off.
JOHN HUTCHINSON – 5
Quiet this match and didn’t get much of the ball.
MITCHELL DUKE – 5.5
Seems to be a bit off at the moment. Can provide so much just not coming off at the minute.
RICHARD VERNES – 5
On in the 57th minute. Did deliver one very good diagonal ball but didn’t see much else.
ISAKA CERNAK – 6
On at half-time. Got one cross in but nothing else to write home about?
GLEN TRIFIRO – 7
On in the 65th minute. Impact player. Did show something but rest of the team flat doesn’t help.
EUGENE GALEKOVIC – 7
Sound job. Quiet match which summed up Mariners’ performance.
MICHAEL MARRONE – 7.5
Back into the starting XI, will be pushing for more starts, been good. If Gombau starts you, you’re doing something right.
TAREK ELRICH – 8
Made a good run down the left to help set up Adelaide’s second goal. Came off with injury but very good.
OSAMA MALIK – 8
I rate him. Been really good this season and form continues.
NIGEL BOOGAARD – 8
Solid at the back and controlled his areas well.
PABLO SÁNCHEZ – 8.5
Netted a double in the first half say no more, real match winner.
ISAÍAS – 7.5
Again good. Gombau’s style of play suits him like all the foreigners, all attacking good going forward.
JAMES JEGGO – 8
Had a picnic in midfield. Enjoyed good possession. Looks good in a good side.
SERGIO CIRIO – 8
Set up the first goal for Adelaide, great pass picked out.
CRAIG GOODWIN – 7.5
Again a good outlet out wide. Got crosses into the box got pass his defender a fair bit.
FABIO FERREIRA – 7
A pretty good shift in attack for Adelaide. Came off 60.
DYLAN McGOWAN – 7
On in the 74th minute. Good.
AWER MABIL – 7
On in the 60th minute. Did his job pretty well, again gets experience great for the youngster. Had a great opportunity late but skewed bad.
BRUCE KAMAU – 7
On in the 66th minute. Ok, not too much involvement but again will benefit for the experience.comments
