Wellington Phoenix vs Newcastle Jets: Player Ratings
GLEN MOSS – 7
Made regulation saves. Couldn’t do anything on the goal, the defence went to sleep.
BEN SIGMUND – 7
Solid and not much could get past him. Also made some very important tackles.
TOM DOYLE – 7
Got better as the match went on. Kept players like Carney and Hoole quiet.
MANNY MUSCAT – 7
Defensively sound and made some good runs into the box.
ANDY DURANTE – 7.5
Got on the score sheet and controlled the back four well. Made some good tackles and interceptions as per usual.
ALEX GORRIN – 8
Helped defensively and had some good passing with Bonevacia and the front players. Solid.
ROLY BONEVACIA – 8.5
Just screams class. Very impressive. Passing was very crisp and it appears he is settling in well.
ALBERT RIERA – 8
Kept the ball well in the heart of the midfield. Always positive with the ball.
JEREMY BROCKIE – 7
Lively and assisted the opener. Played 60 minutes and also helped defensively when needed. Better shift from him.
NATHAN BURNS – 8.5
Very good. Scored two and set up one. His dribbling with the ball is fast and always threatening on the counter. Needs to learn how to finish a one-on-one though.
MICHAEL MCGLINCHEY – 8
Played down the left wing but played high. Setup a goal and scored. Great performance.
VINCE LIA – 6
Continued on with Wellington’s momentum.
KENNY CUNNINGHAM – N/A
Pacey and pretty effective when he came on with ten to go.
LOUIS FENTON – 6
Lost his man and that led to the Jets’ only goal.
MARK BIRIGHITTI – 6
First goal was not his fault. Second goal he could have done better. Third goal not to blame however fourth he was left floundering on the cross.
SCOTT NEVILLE – 5
Did not hold his ground well enough against McGlinchey and let him get in behind too many times.
SAM GALLAGHER – 5
Caught ball watching for the Phoenix’ opener. Second goal also questionable. Not his day.
DAVID CARNEY – 5
Made some adventurous runs down the left and got some deliveries into the box. Dispossesed and cost the Jets the third goal though.
KEW JALIENS – 6
Not his best performance in a Jets shirt.
MARCOS FLORES – 5.5
In and out of the game. Didn’t contribute a lot.
ANDREW HOOLE – 6
Kept Manny Muscat honest and has some good sharpness about him
ZENON CARAVELLA – 6
Wellington's midfield was too dominant so he had a difficult task. Got ran around a fair bit.
JOEL GRIFFITHS – 7
Only goal scorer with a late eader. Being played as a number ten type. Going in deep to receive the ball. Maybe he’s suited more as a true number nine.
JACOB PEPPER – 6.5
Battled on strongly. Victim of circumstance. Made some good interceptions and tackles.
EDSON MONTANO – 5
Was quiet today and got subbed off early in the second-half.
JERONIMO NEUMANN – 6
Looked lively but the damage was already done by the time he came on.
JAMES VIRGILI – 6
Again a difficult scenario with his team down after coming on.
SAMUEL GALLAWAY – 5.5
Average performance after coming on for Hoole.
