Jason Davidson - 9

More of a winger than a defender, the fringe Socceroo found himself in effective attacking positions, and took his chance beautifully to open the scoring. Had paddocks of space on the left flank, and used it to effect throughout the match linking up with Keogh and Castro with ease.

Ivan Franjic - 7.5

Absolutely tore up Stefan nigro down the right wing. Everything good was going through the former Roar man until he was subbed off with a mysterious injury halfway through the first-half.

Neil Kilkenny - 7

Marshaled his team well, did not need to get too involved as the Roar struggled to mount any sustained attack. Triggered multiple attacks with incisive passing.

Juande - 7.5

Largely untroubled for most of the match. Does provide the occasional sloppy moment but a fairly clinical holding midfielder at the end of the day.

Chris Ikonimidis - 8

Becoming too good for this league very quickly. Played off Keogh beautifully and terrorized the roar defenders all night. Unlucky to finish the night without a goal after being subbed off at the 77thminute.

Diego Castro - 9.5

Pulled off some outrageous skill to set up Keogh for the third goal. Played with freedom and creativity- a joy for all A-League fans to watch.

Andy Keogh - 9

A perfect striker’s performance, smart enough to be in the perfect positions at the optimal time. Should be noted that Keogh ran hard to pressure the Roar defenders, forcing them into indiscriminate clearances.


Scott Neville- 8

Replaced Franjic in the x minute, provided an inch perfect assist with his first touch of the match. A very lively replacement for the experienced Franjic.

Joel Chianese- 7

Replaced Djulbic in the 72ndminute.

Fabio Ferreira- 7

Replaced Ikonimidis in the 77thminute.
