Nick Sullivan - 5

Sullivan was a bystander for the Wanderers in the first half, rarely involved in build up while his pressure on Brandon O'Neill didn't stop the midfielder from pulling his usual strings. He was  removed in the 49th minute with an injury. 

Keanu Baccus - 6.5

Keanu Baccus showed quick feet, which was needed to break through Sydney's midfield wall. He had Sydney's defence on the backfoot a number of times throughout the match. 

Pirmin Schwegler - 7.5

Milos Ninkovic was finding a suspicious amount of space through the centre of the park as Schwegler struggled to keep tabs on Sydney's agile attack. Those issues were fixed in the second half with a fantastic performance from the Swiss midfielder.

Kwame Yeboah - 6

Yeboah grabbed a secondary assist to Duke's goal, involved in the build up once Retre lost the ball in the final third. 

Mitchell Duke - 7.5

The Wanderers skipper sent Bankwest Stadium into raptures as he opened the scoring with a powerful header on 19 minutes. Duke's workrate and defensive performance was extraordinary and deserving of a win. 

Alex Meier - 5.5

Meier's build up play was promising but he couldn't manage to get into threatening goal scoring positions enough during the match. 


Mohamed Adam - 6

Adam was brought in to inject some more life into the Wanderers with the match at 1-0. He found very little of the ball and didn't threaten Sydney FC.
