Player Ratings: Western Sydney Wanderers vs Sydney FC

Western Sydney Wanderers remain winless this season after another home draw, this time against rivals Sydney FC. Griffin McMaster rates every players performance from another entertaining Sydney derby.

WESTERN SYDNEY WANDERERS

ANTE COVIC - 6.5 Quiet game. Could not do anything about the Sydney goal... it was a rocket. He left a shot off Janko's lucky free kick.

NIKOLAI TOPOR-STANLEY - 7.5 Solid defender and always consistent.

SEYI ADELEKE - 6 Did not see much in this match. Ibini turned him inside out.

BRENDAN HAMILL - 7 Sydney did not get many chances down his side.

MATTHEW ŠPIRANOVIC- 7.5 Solid at the back and not troubled too much.

TOMI JURIC - 7.5 Bobbed up at the right place to score the opening goal.

MARK BRIDGE - 7 Played well. Provided great passing. Had a golden one on one but his effort was well saved by Janjetovic.

IACOPO LA ROCCA - 7 Took out Abbas. Sydney missing something in midfield because of it. Was dominant in midfield.

MATEO POLJAK - 6.5 Screened well but Ibini turned him inside out for Sydney's goal.

ROMEO CASTELEN - 6 Starts out wide and cuts in but was not effective.

NIKITA RUKAVYTSYA - 7.5 Excellent again down the left hand side. Had a one-on-one to get Wanderers second goal but could not score.

SHANNON COLE - N/A 70 th minute

SYDNEY FC

VEDRAN JANJETOVIC - 7.5 Has been great and made a great save to deny Bridge at the end of the first half. Good!

NIKOLA PETKOVIC - 7 Was all over the place for the Wanderers goal. Was very under the pump in the first half. Tightened up well in the second half.

ALEX GERSBACH - 6.5 Not bad going forward. Got exposed at the back. Is 17 years of age and learning what it's about.

PREDRAG BOJIC - 7.5 Was caught out a few times but excellent work to clear one off the line in the first half.

SEB RYALL - 7 Had a lot of attack against and found wanting on a few occasions. Second half better.

BERNIE IBINI-ISEI - 7.5 That goal was class. Took on two players and rocketed one in from the edge of the box.

SHANE SMELTZ - 6.5 Started but not in his regular position. Quiet.

ALI ABBAS - N/A Was in the early wars. Got carried off injured. Heard ACL. Hope he's ok.

TERRY ANTONIS - 7 Good settler in midfield. Calming influence something Sydney need without Dmitrijevic and now Abbas.

ALEX BROSQUE - 6 Had some glimpses but did not get a lot of the ball to show what he's about.

MARC JANKO - 6 Quiet never saw much action except at the death with the free kick which hit the crossbar unlucky.

 

SUBSTITUTES

CHRIS NAUMOFF - N/A On 82 nd minute.

RHYAN GRANT - 6 On early for Abbas. Has to step up now in Dmitrijevic's absence.

MATTHEW JURMAN - N/A On last minute.
