WELLINGTON PHOENIX 

Filip Kurto - 7

Virtually a spectator for 90 minutes as Brisbane failed to muster a meaningful shot on target, but was called upon in injury time to brilliantly deny Lopez the winner.

Tom Doyle - 8

His shot was parried for Taylor's miss early on, but did his best work at the heart of Wellington's back five. Doyle put his body on the line on countless occasions and was produced an excellent display of defending. He was turned inside out by Beautheac late on, but otherwise enjoyed an impressive evening.

Andrew Durante - 7.5

Kept Taggart under wraps and led by example with some excellent defending. Showed his class once again as he approaches his 250th appearance next weekend.

Steven Taylor - 7.5

Doesn't score many goals, but certainly won't get a better chance than his glaring miss in the 9th minute. His 'no nonsense' style of play probably won't win him the Johnny Warren Medal, but it will certainly help Wellington win games.

Louis Fenton - 7.5

Worked hard down the right side but performed his primary defensive duties well throughout the encounter and kept Mikkelsen, and then Henrique, very quiet.

Liberato Cacace - 7.5

Deployed in a left wingback role, he did his defensive duties astutely. Looked to bomb forward when he had the chance but had limited opportunities as Brisbane dominated possession.
