Mandi – 7

Scored a nice goal from outside the area, but otherwise not much to say. Went missing in the second half.

Alex Rufer – 5.5

Offered little for Nix, picked up a yellow in the second half for a clumsy challenge

Michal Kopcyzynski – 5.5

Struggled to get into the match, and was clearly not comfortable in the central midfield position. Subbed off in the second half for Max Burgess.

David Williams – 6

Looked up for it, and was strong out on the right wing

Roy Krishna – 5.5

The main danger man struggled to get much of the ball, and was effectively marked out of the game by the towering centre-halves of Adelaide. Subbed off after 70 minutes.

Nathan Burns – 5.5

Looks interested, but not in a system that suits him. Playing out wide in a team which pumps balls into the box with no proper aerial threat leaves him superfluous.


Max Burgess – 6  

The youngster couldn’t help Nix out much in his 25 minute appearance, coming on for Kopacyznski.

Mitch Nichols – 6

Offered a bit more of a wily presence up front, but couldn’t add anything to the Nix attack. Subbed on for Krishna.
