A match packed with debutant poachers: see how the player's rated in Melbourne City's 1-1 draw with Adelaide United.
Ritchie de Laet – 7
Decent run early on showed good ball control. Another player working hard when tracking back. Quick feet in the attacking third. Sometimes wasteful in his distribution. Fantastic run into the final third. Subbed 70th minute.
Lachlan Wales – 7
The NAB young footballer nominee offered strong runs into the box all night. Very lively performance, putting in some promising crosses.
Jamie Maclaren – 7.5
In the Socceroos' return to the A-League he showed fantastic pace. One decent effort on goal, his shot just swung wide in the first-half.
Pressed really well up front and showed his experience. Rewarded with a goal through sloppy Reds defending but he created the goal opportunity through his pressure. Subbed 83rd minute.
Shayon Harrison – 7
Debut, on loan from Tottenham Hotspur.
Quick feet, nice ball control, but a sloppy tackle on Mirko Boland. Decent effort on goal in the second half, trying on the volley but just couldn’t get his body over the ball.
Strong and quick feet to move the ball around the park. City have a good signing and will adapt really well with a few games under his belt.
Iacopo la Rocca – 5
Gave the ball away in a dangerous position, sloppy attempt to clear his lines. Put into midfield and looked seriously out of position at times. No impact at all.
Dario Vidosic - N/A
Riley McGree – 6
Putting himself about, showed good energy since coming on - a very positive impact.
