A wasteful Sydney FC have fallen to an unlikely 1-1 home draw against the lowly Central Coast Mariners.
Michael Zullo - 6
Received a ton of the ball down the left flank but was unable to provide the killer ball to unlock the Mariners defense.
Adrian Caceres - 7
Fought hard all day to chase and win the ball back but found it tough going in an unfamiliar wide position.
Brandon O’Neill - 7
Typically clinical in his defensive duties but unable to provide enough creativity and impetus in attack.
Josh Brillante - 6
Made no major contributions and was often compelled to drop extremely deep whenever the Mariners picked up possession.
Milos Ninkovic - 9
As good as ever. Everything Sydney went through the skillful Serbian feet of Milos Ninkovic.
Reza Ghoochannejhad - 6
Still yet to really dominate a game after two attempts. Plenty more to come from the Iranian.
Adam Le Fondre - 7
Pretty uninvolved all afternoon and suffered from the lack of service provided by the Sydney midfield. Slotted his one opportunity from the penalty spot after Karacan fouled clumsily.
Alex Brosque - 6
Won the penalty that gave the sky blues the equalizer and spurned a difficult chance with just minutes remaining.
Luke Ivanovic - 6
Got right amongst it after being introduced in the second half but was unable to provide the key to unlock the Mariners defensive unit.
Aaron Calver - N/A
Replaced O’Neill with just a few minutes remaining. The defender was deployed as a big number nine.
