Sydney FC have continued on their merry way with a commanding 3-0 victory over Brisbane Roar at Suncorp Stadium.
Jamie Young – 5: While he can’t be blamed for any of the goals, he would like to have got a greater hand on Mierzejewski’s second half strike. It’s never a good night when you pick the ball out of your net three times.
Dane Ingham – 5.5: A respectable performance up against Ninkovic throughout the course of the match, however, he looked well below par in his first game since Round 5.
Luke DeVere – 5.5: Played with his heart on his sleeve as always but it was a night he and his teammates will quickly want to move on from.
Daniel Bowles – 5: Nothing major to write home about on a night where he struggled to contain the likes of Bobo.
Corey Brown – 6: Apart of a back four that conceded three goals, but his willingness to get forward was quite enjoyable to watch.
Thomas Kristensen – 5.5: Brought a sense of composure in the middle of the park for the home side but made far too many simple mistakes. Withdrawn with two-thirds of the match completed.
Jacob Pepper – 5: Completed the 90 minutes but failed to make a major impact on the contest. His failure to close down Mierzejewski for Sydney’s second goal was telling.
Petros Skapetis – 5: Playing in the lone striker role, the 22-year-old struggled to make a major impact seeing very little of the ball.
Fahid Ben Khalfallah – 6: Looked the most likely to create something for his side during the first half with several exciting runs but faded in the second half. Although he was a greater figure late on.
Daniel Leck – 6: Showed plenty of promise in his starting debut after being called into the line up just minutes before kick off. Looked dangerous on the counter but on several occasions lacked the final product.
Massimo Maccarone – 6: Gave glimpses of his ability on several occasions, coming closest for his side only to be denied by Redmayne’s smart save.
Eric Bautheac – 5.5: Provided signs of life off the bench but to no avail.
Mitch Oxborrow – 5: No major impact after entering the fray.
Rahmat Akbari – N/A: Not enough time to make an impact.
Andrew Redmayne – 6: Another clean sheet for Redmayne who enjoyed a quiet night apart from some comfortable saves late. His most notable moment came in the first half when he got down low to deny Maccarone.
Luke Wilkshire – 6.5: A comfortable defensive performance from the veteran defender who looked a constant threat going forward. Shown a yellow card late in the match.
Jordy Bujis – 6: A solid performance on a night where he was rarely tested.
Alex Wilkinson – 7: One of the most underrated players in the competition who continues to shine. He made a several vital interceptions throughout the night.
Michael Zullo – 6.5: Willing to get forward at every possible occasion, putting dangerous balls into the box. Endured an interesting battle up against Leck.
Brandon O’Neill – 6: Yet another solid performance in the middle of the park, while picking up a yellow card late.
Josh Brillante – 8: Consistently shows endeavour on the pitch and was rewarded with a strong performance. His willingness to drive forward makes him key to Graham Arnold’s side. Picked up a yellow card for his troubles.
Alex Brosque – 6: Denied an assist after being in an offside position in a solid performance without shining bright.
Milos Ninkovic – 6.5: Made his presence felt early with an assist for Bobo’s opener with a powerful pass across the face of goal. Showed neat touches for the remainder of the match but nothing of major note.
Adrian Mierzejewski – 7.5: Once again the Pole was an influential figure, playing a delicate ball to Ninkovic in the lead up to the game’s opener before getting one of his own with a lovely curling finish. Denied a second following Brosque’s offside position in the lead up.
Bobo – 6.5: Got on the scoresheet with his 15th goal of the season with a tap-in for the game’s opener before lurking as a constant threat. On another day he could have had more than one.
Matt Simon – 5.5: No major impact other than a yellow card.
David Carney – 6.5: Made the perfect cameo off the bench with his side’s third goal.
Paulo Retre – N/A: Entered the fray in the final seconds.
