It was a fiery and thrilling encounter on Saturday night in the Sydney Derby between Sydney FC and Western Sydney Wanderers. But who was the best on ground? Check out Griffin McMaster's player ratings.
VEDRAN JANJETOVIC - 5
Couldn't do anything on the first goal. Mis-judged a high ball on the second goal. Unconvincing in the second half.
SASA OGNENOVSKI - 8
Scored. Even though it did come off Castelen it still stands as his goal. Big moment in the match. Was fired up and helped his team's cause.
SEBASTIAN RYALL - 7
Seasoned for these games and did well.
NIKOLA PETKOVIC - 7
Always composed on the ball. Calming influence. Did his job pretty well.
ALEX GERSBACH - 7.5
Making his first start in the A-League. Just got out done with his defending on the first otherwise did very well.
TERRY ANTONIS - 7
Great player for the A-League. Did well again.
BERNIE IBINI-ISEI - 6
His strength is running at players but he didn't get too many opportunities to do so.
MILOS DIMITRIJEVIC - 8
Was excellent. Full marks.
ALEX BROSQUE - 8
Was also excellent. Well done with the deft finish. The match winner.
MARC JANKO - 6
A couple of shots went flying over the bar. Didn't see much else from him.
COREY GAMEIRO - 8
Such a dangerous player. Has come on from last season.
ALI ABBAS - 6.5
Fresh from international duty with Iraq. Came on in the 83rd minute and was surprisingly played up the park more when 3-2 in front. Funnily was still busy on the left.
WESTERN SYDNEY WANDERERS
ANTE COVIC - 7
Couldn't blame him for the goals, although the 3rd goal perhaps he didn't anticipate it quick enough. Otherwise was solid with crosses and distribution.
ANTHONY GOLEC - 7.5
Up against Ibini. Did well to thwart his forward runs.
BRENDAN HAMILL - 8
Very good. Pleased. Looked like he got injured.
DANIEL MULLEN - 6
A lot of Sydney's attack came from down his side. Was caught out a few times.
NIKOLA TOPOR-STANLEY - 6.5
Coming off Socceroos match and looked solid. Defended well off set pieces. Although his side conceded three.
ROMEO CASTELEN - 7
Not bad. Great move on the right for the first goal and first touch was great. Will see much more from him this season.
VITOR SABA - 6.5
Formerly with Brescia in Italy. Very good while he was on. Busy in the middle linked well with the front strikers. Got sent off for a challenge on Antonis.
MARK BRIDGE - 7.5
Class finish with the first goal. Always runs and works hard. Didn't deserve to be on the losing side.
IACOPO LA ROCCA - 7
Did better than last week. Will improve.
MATEO POLJAK - 7
Performed well. Unfortunate to be on the losing side.
BRENDAN SANTALAB - 7
Was ok. Limped off. Hopefully not too serious.
SHANNON COLE - 6
On in the 73rd minute. Had not much time to show anything.
KWABENA APPIAH-KUBI - 6
On in the 76th and again didn't have a lot of involvement.
LABINOT HALITI - N/A
On in the 87th minute. Not much timecomments
