Celebrate our milestone men this weekend

There are some crucial games in the Hyundai A-League Round 25, made even more special with a host of players and clubs set to achieve some eye-catching milestones this weekend.

Adelaide United’s home clash with Brisbane Roar FC  is one such game. 

At Coopers Stadium on Saturday afternoon, Reds striker Bruce Djite has the chance to go equal second on the club’s list of all-time scorers.

If Djite finds the net it will be his 25th for the club, drawing him level with Sergio van Dijk and just five behind leader former club fave Travis Dodd (30).

Meanwhile, Reds defender Nigel Boogaard is set to chalk up his 150th in the competition.

What's more, Thomas Broich will go equal third (with now Perth Glory midfielder Mitch Nichols on 125] as Roar’s most-capped player, behind skipper Matt McKay (170) and Massimo Murdocca (162).

And Roar’s Michael Theo and Perth Glory gloveman Danny Vukovic are currently tied at the top for most Hyundai A-League clean sheets, the latter drawing level after a shut-out against Newcastle on Easter Monday.

Speaking of the Jets, their next goal will be their 300th since the start of the Hyundai A-League 10 years ago.

At Victory, Archie Thompson’s goal in the win over Wellington last weekend didn’t just increase his lead at the top of the all-time A-League scorers charts to three but he is also closing in on another milestone.
