Melbourne City marquee Ritchie De Laet's long range effort and Bruno Fornaroli's first goal of the season was enough for City to down Wellington Phoenix 2-0 at home. It was a disappointing effort from Wellington with hardly any clear cut chances and their third match without a win.
Eugene Galekovic - 6
Hardly anything for Galekovic to do this evening with Wellington failing to threaten.
Scott Jamieson - 5
Not fantastic on the ball with misplaced passes as well as struggling to control the ball on a few instances.
Harrison Delbridge - 6
Delbridge just had to worry about his passing until he clattered into Steven Taylor with a horrible tackle to earn himself a yellow card.
Bart Schenkeveld - 6.5
Schenkeveld was able to use his pace to break away from a Wellington corner but his passing in the middle third was poor and prevented City from having chances.
Ritchie De Laet - 7
Brilliant technique to open the scoring slicing across the ball with power from Lachlan Wales' cut-back to the edge of the area. Neat link up play with Melbourne's line of midfielders opened space for deliveries on the right.
