Mandi Sosa - 7

An industrial 90 minutes from the Spanish wrecking ball as he helped close down the space in front of his backline with an excellent display.

Alex Rufer - 7

Busy worker in midfield and broke up Brisbane's attacks. Almost punished after being caught on the ball on the hour mark. Withdrawn after 82 minutes for Nichols.

Sarpreet Singh - 6.5

Showed his attacking intent as early as the 1st minute but despite his 'shoot on sight' approach, failed to find his range. Had an excellent opportunity to help the Phoenix knick it late on but his final ball once again lacked quality.

Roy Krishna - 8

Showed exactly how valuable he is to the Phoenix as he led from the front and looked to attack at every opportunity. Constantly looked to exploit the space in behind the Roar backline, and in particular behind O'Toole down Brisbane's left. Ran himself into the ground before making way late on for Burns.

David Williams - 5.5

It was a quiet homecoming from the former Roar striker who was rarely sighted in the attacking third for Wellington. Guilty of static movement in the box just before halftime when a tap in beckoned. Withdrawn after 67 ineffectual minutes for Max Burgess.


Mitch Nichols - N/A

Given just under 10 minutes but failed to make a noticeable impact. 

Max Burgess - 6

Came on for Williams and given best part of half an hour to influence the match but spent more time doing his defensive duties.

Nathan Burns - N/A

Brought on for fresh legs in the dying moments.
