Griff's team of the week round 12

FORMER Brisbane Roar keeper Griffin McMaster has pulled together his team of the week for round 12 and it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas (tree) (formation)...

GK Glen Moss
(Wellington Phoenix)
Had another solid game in the goals and proved again why he’s labelled as a consistent number 1 goalkeeper in the A-League. Saved six shots in total.

DL Michael Zullo
(Adelaide United)
Sound performance from Zullo who is back in the A-League after a couple of seasons in Holland. Has settled in well and adapted back into the A-League. Helped his team to a clean sheet.

DC Trent Sainsbury
(Central Coast Mariners)
Goalscorer and defended superbly in the 2-1 win over Perth Glory. 62 passes at 81% a bolter for the Socceroos and with his consistency he could get a move overseas in the future.

DC Zac Anderson
(Central Coast Mariners)
Like his defending partner Trent, Zac also had a solid match. The Gold Coast product has only a handful of appearances so far in this A-League campaign however came up trumps with the Perth match ups of De Sllva and Makeche.

DR Tarek Elrich
(Adelaide United)
Did a sound job at right back against a confident Newcastle side. Tracks back and sets himself well for defensive situations. Works hard with his other three defenders.

ML Michael McGlinchey
(Central Coast Mariners)
A big constant threat down the left hand side and was a big performer in their 2-1 win over Perth Glory. Gave good service to Duke and McBreen and also got on the scoresheet.

MC Steven McGarry
(Perth Glory)
Did play in a losing side however look very good considering. Busy as in the midfield with plenty of tackles and mobility. Got on the scoresheet. 45 passes at 87%.

MR Ivan Franjic
(Brisbane Roar)
Been a model of consistency this season and a chance at winning player of the year at this rate. Ever present in the 5-2 win against Sydney FC. 73/84 completed passes and again popped onto the scoresheet.

AM Thomas Broich
(Brisbane Roar)
Ever involved and 70 passes at 87% and a goal to his name was. A real fan favourite. Linked up well for the second goal of the match. With him at full fitness expect Brisbane to challenge for honours this

FWDR Dmitri Petratos
(Brisbane Roar)
How can you leave a hattrick hero out? The Greek was a masterclass and gets the best player for the week.

SC Bruce Djite
(Adelaide United)
Did enough to warrant selection in team of the week. Scored the winning goal against a well organised and well drilled side. His work rate is key for United. Also links up well with Cirlo, Neumann and Carrusca.
