Be sure to have a read ahead, check the latest team news, and comment any questions down below to make sure you’re best prepared for what the round has to offer! This week’s post is also in more of a form-guide format rather than a complete breakdown of the match-ups so be sure to let us know what you think and what else you’d like to see from our articles here at SuperCoach HQ!
Melbourne City v Sydney FC
Nicolas Colazo (MID $269k) – two goals in two games; once when his team needed him most and once with an instant impact off the bench. Clinical.
Milos Ninkovic (MID $348k) – even when his team hits the wall, the Serbian still leads the team with recoveries, shot assists and shots on target. Consistent.
Michael Jakobsen (DEF $191k) – returning from injury in a side that has kept barely two clean sheets all season. Unreliable.
Brisbane Roar v Wellington Phoenix
Jamie Maclaren (FWD $305k) – five goals in his past seven; rested from the ACL match mid-week. Reliable.
The Nix – eleven goals conceded and only three for in their past three matches. Out of form.
Luke DeVere (DEF $179k) – out for four weeks with a calf problem. Injured.
Tommy Oar (MID $211k) – left out of the side all together after a quiet couple months compounded by ACL commitments. Dropped.
Melbourne Victory v Adelaide United
Besart Berisha (FWD $320k) – four goals in his past five; the Albanian has recaptured his form. On target.
James Troisi (MID $322k) – in each game Victory dominates, the midfielder often plays a big role in making it happen. Influential.
The Reds – despite notching up just their third win in 20 games, there’s no denying they’re the only team to average less than one goal a game. Missing.
Perth Glory v Western Sydney Wanderers
Diego Castro (MID $339k) – four goals in his past three, he clearly dictates play when the Glory have possession. Maestro.
Mitch Nichols (MID $292k) – after a shaky middle part of the season, has returned to the spotlight in assisting the winner in one of his side’s greatest wins of the season. Back.
Ryan Griffiths (FWD $225k) – is being used more for the ACL, with little to no impact so far on the domestic league. Not worth it.
Newcastle Jets v Central Coast Mariners
Andrew Nabbout (FWD $247k) – 22 shots on target for 7 goals in a season is not a bad record for 20 games. Accurate.
Roy O’Donovan (FWD $220k) – Has scored almost half of his side’s goals this season, and loves terrorizing a shaky defence. Leader.
Nigel Boogard (DEF $188k) – suspended for a week, taking with him a large chunk of experience from the heart of defence. Missed.
