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.
