A clinical performance from Melbourne City saw them slip past Brisbane Roar 1-0 at AAMI Park.
Rostyn Griffiths - 7.5
One powerful effort unlucky not to send his side into half-time a goal ahead.
Kearyn Baccus - 7.5
A very calm and self-possessed first half included world-class through balls, but was let down by his obvious shooting inadequacies.
Luke Brattan - 7
Not his best performance, some lousy crosses by his own high standards, but still solid.
Lachlan Wales - 6.5
Heavily involved, with decent build-up play but inexperience in key situations. A marquee striker would have netted given his chances, but if we're rating him as a up-and-comer, rather than a starting striker, he did very well.
Riley McGree - N/A
Subbed on the 15th minute after a knee collision.
Nathaniel Atkinson - 6
He bombs forward regularly and works hard, shows potential, but gives the ball away too easily. He also should have converted a header off a plumb Ritchie de Laet cross, but appeared slightly scared of the ball.
Osama Malik - 6
Couldn't add a lot of solidity as Brisbane pressed forward.
Dario Vidosic - 6
Not involved enough, didn't settle the ball or retain possession.
