Sydney FC remain unbeaten this season after a 2-1 win over Melbourne City on Saturday night. Griffin McMaster tells us who was best on ground and who was rubbish.
MELBOURNE CITY FC
ANDREW REDMAYNE – 6 Flapped at the cross which gifted Sydney the openener however he got back into the game with two good one-on-one stops.
IAIN RAMSAY – 5 Got exposed a lot. Bernie Ibini was having a field day.
JASON HOFFMAN – 6 Did well although a fair few crosses came in from his side.
ROB WIELAERT – 5 Had a lot of Sydney attacks to deal with and got exploited. Gave away the winning goal with a shocking back-pass.
PATRICK KISNORBO – 6 Like Wielaert he had a lot of pressure against him.
AARON MOOY – 7 Back from international duty. Sharp and always showing good pressure. City’s best player.
LIAM MILLER – 5 Van't Schip needed to change things up in midfield at half-time and Miller was the man sacrificed.
ERIK PAARTALU – 6.5 Couldn’t cope with Sydney’s attack however did score at the death. Two goals in two weeks.
DAMIEN DUFF – 7 Out on the wing as always. Was offering something for City’s attack. Got another assist. Dominant player in the A-League.
DAVID WILLIAMS – 6 Had a chance on 49 minutes to equalise but mis-hit his shot. Wasn’t his night.
MATE DUGANDZIC – 6 100th A-league match and played 77 minutes. Was ok in bursts but things didn’t work out.
JAMES BROWN – 6 On after 66 minutes minute. Almost equalised late on. Deserves a start in my opinion.
JACOB MELLING – 6.5 Came on at half-time and was a big boost for City. Showed his potential.
MARC MARINO – N/A On 77th minute. Should have scored couldn’t get on the end of it at the death.
VEDRAN JANJETOVIC – 8 Finally let in a goal but was superb tonight otherwise.
NIKOLA PETKOVIC – 7.5 Solid at the back.
SEBASTIAN RYALL – 7.5 Has been solid and continued his good form tonight.
ALEX GERSBACH – 7 17-years of age and not doing too badly at all. Learning what the A-League is about. On the left hand side got some effective runs.
PREDRAG BOJIC – 7 Came in to do a job and did it well.
ALEX BROSQUE – 7.5 Did well. Had plenty of service and Graham Arnold’s got his role working well.
ALI ABBAS – 6.5 Missed a good one-on-one but had a good game otherwise.
TERRY ANTONIS – 7.5 Couldn’t play last week and it showed how much they miss him. He is Sydney’s X-factor.
MILOS DIMITRIJEVIC 5.5 – Not as much involvement as previous matches. Was harshly sent off at the end.
BERNIE IBINI-ISEI – 8 Finally starting to come good. Got the assist for the goal and also his work off the ball was good.
MARC JANKO – 8.5 How professional is he? Misses the Austrian friendly against Brazil to play in this match and scores two goals! Had a blinder.
RHYAN GRANT – 6 Making his return from a serious injury. Played the last twenty minutes.
SHANE SMELTZ - N/A Came on in the fourth minute of injury time to see the game out.
