Melbourne City v Sydney FC

HOT
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.

COLD
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

HOT
Jamie Maclaren (FWD $305k) – five goals in his past seven; rested from the ACL match mid-week. Reliable.

COLD
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

HOT
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.

COLD
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

HOT
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.

COLD
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

HOT
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.

COLD
Nigel Boogard (DEF $188k) – suspended for a week, taking with him a large chunk of experience from the heart of defence. Missed.

Good luck!
