Central Coast Mariners

Ben Kennedy - 7

Clearly error prone but also has the ability to stand up and make big saves when called upon. This was most evident in the 90th minute where Kennedy saved a huge chance that fell to Ninkovic.

Sam Graham - 8

Started slowly, possibly struggling in the intense Aussie heat. Grew into the game in the second half and proved his worth with some impressive one v one defensive tackles.

Jonathan Aspropotamitis - 8

A great young defender who seems to always find himself in the ideal defensive position.

Jack Clisby - 8

Had a good day defensively making multiple important interventions.

Connor Pain - 6

Not very involved with just 16 touches for the entire day. Dragged by Mike Mulvey at the 53rd minute.

Jem Karacan - 7

Had a good day but was unlucky to give away a soft penalty that let Sydney back in.

Tommy Oar - 7

Came off after 17 minutes with what looked a bad knee injury. However Oar was able to hobble off, indicating the injury may not be as bad as first thought.

Aiden O’Neill - 8

Fairly uninvolved until the ball trickled to him in the 36thminute, with the Burnley loanee showing great composure to hit the bottom right corner.
