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.
Isaias – 7.5
United’s captain put in yet another solid display. The Spaniard made some attacking bursts into Glory’s defensive line but never took his chances.
Nathan Konstandopoulos– 6.5
Caught the eye with some swift midfield play but found it hard to set any of his teammates into attacking positions.
Daniel Adlung – 7.5
The German had some exquisite touches and passes, but some poor decision-making in shot choice let him down.
Karim Matmour – 7
Some magic touches and passing moves didn’t turn into many positive attacking moves for the Reds. Matmour was forced off with some extensive bruising to his right arm.
George Blackwood – 6
Just wasn’t his night. Had a few too many heavy touches and found it hard creating any chances for Adelaide with some fairly ordinary positioning for crosses. The youngster’s hold up play was brilliant, bringing so many others into the game.
Nikola Mileusnic – 6.5
Had a few shots on goal, none of which hit the target. The winger failed to deliver any dangerous crosses to any of his attacking teammates.
Mark Ochieng – 6
Made a few attacking bursts, but the service to Ochieng was lacking, ultimately making it hard for the substitute to get involved in the play.
Ryan Kitto – 5.5
Didn’t make much of an impact with his time on the pitch.
Apostolos Stamatelopoulos – N/A
Came on too late to make an impact.
