The Mariners continued their unbeaten run at Spotless Stadium, drawing 2-2 against a Wanderers side who epitomised the cliché of ‘a game of two halves’.
Daniel De Silva – 8.5
Man of the match without a doubt. De Silva personifies class, speed, dynamism and determination - a brilliant performance from a very promising young player. His second half goal was initiated by his own movement and pass, then was finished off beautifully by De Silva himself.
Andrew Hoole – 6
Hoole was very busy throughout the match. He played with confidence, exemplified by his through ball to De Silva for the Mariner’s second goal. Conversely, some of his decision-making was poor, and he missed a great opportunity in the first half. To cap an eventful game off, he was red carded (second yellow) for a very reckless and silly aerial challenge in the 85th minute.
Connor Pain – 4.5
His movement was decent, but Pain disappeared throughout many periods of the match. His clear-cut chance in the first half should have been converted, as well.
Asdrúbal – 6.5
Asdrúbal was relatively quiet during the match, but he contributed positively. His goal may have been a tap-in, but he was only in that position because he displayed tenacity and an opportunistic spirit.
Josh Bingham – 6
His ability to head the ball was well received. Overall, a handy substitution for the Mariners, but not game changing.
Jake McGing – 4
Very limited time on the ball which led to a very minimal impact after coming on an eighty-second minute substitute.
Kwabena Appiah – 6
Brought on late in the 88th minute, Appiah still managed to be dynamic up front, moving the ball around nicely. His efforts led to nothing, but he had a positive few minutes on the field.
