An injury-riddled Adelaide United travelled west to face the Perth Glory at nib Stadium without five first team players. The home side took their time, but eventually broke the deadlock with the game’s only goal in the 80th minute.
Paul Izzo – 9
The United goalkeeper had an unbelievable game, denying the Glory on so many occasions, even saving a Diego Castro penalty. The only downside to his game was some sloppy distribution from time to time.
Michael Marrone – 7
Gave away a clumsy penalty within the opening three minutes but made up for it with some assertive runs down the flank to join the Adelaide attack.
Jordan Elsey – 6.5
Stood up strong when he needed to in order to deny any threats from the Glory attack.
Ben Warland – 7.5
Starting to grow into the role with each passing week. Increasing confidence led to a strong defensive display
Ben Garuccio – 6.5
The fullback showed exciting intent with some delightful runs down the flank. Unfortunately for the Reds, no clear cut chances eventuated from the fullback’s crosses.
