Sydney FC managed to down a Wellington Phoenix side that simply wouldn’t go away at Allianz Stadium on Sunday night.
Matthew Ridenton – 5
Didn’t manage to catch the eye with any of his play, which was the underlying reason in why the midfielder was substituted in the 60th minute.
Goran Paracki – 6
More sloppy defending on the first goal. The Croatian worked hard in the midfield to try and rectify the situation his side was in, to no avail.
Dario Vidosic – 6
A well taken goal was able to shine a light on fairly dull performance.
Michael McGlinchey – 5.5
Couldn’t hold the ball in his possession and find his teammates in any attacking positions during the game. Managed to get an assist and keep his side in the game with a great ball that found Dario Vidosic’s head.
Roy Krishna – 5
Let his frustration out towards the end of the game, having difficulty to keep the ball at his feet and find a path to goal.
Andrija Kaluderovic – 6.5
Like Vidosic, the striker couldn’t get into the game with the ball stuck in his side’s defensive half. A sweet strike into the side netting was able to brighten up what was another dull input.
Ali Abbas – 5
Entered the Sydney pitch to a very warm welcome in front of the fans who used to sing his name, but was unable to make an impact. Late on, a poor offside call denied the Iraqi flyer the chance to bring his side level.
Adam Parkhouse – 5.5
The winger found it hard to maintain any consistency with his crossing, missing a few chances to deliver a good ball to any of his teammates even though he brought a spark of confidence onto the ground.
Hamish Watson – N/A
Came on too late to make an impact.
