Hyundai A-League Team of the Week: Round 7
With Wanderers and Phoenix postponed, who shone from the remaining four games played this weekend?
Lawrence Thomas (Victory)
Did everything asked of him in keeping his first clean sheet of the season in Perth.
Connor O'Toole (Roar)
At ease in just his second top-flight match, the left-back gave a glimpse of his class going forward with a wonderful curling cross in the first half.
Jordan Elsey (Reds)
Made several key challenges to keep Adelaide in the game and was clearly aided by the return of Ersan Gulum.
Avraam Papadopoulos (Roar)
His two goals sealed Brisbane's first win, while he also marshalled a patched-up defence. What more could you want from the big man?
Rhys Williams (Victory)
Rubbed salt into the wound of his former side with an unflustered display at nib Stadium. Clean sheet and three points? Doesn’t get better than that.
Daniel Adlung (Reds) Put United on his back with that thunderbolt of an equaliser. Looms as a key man in the Cup Final on Tuesday night.
Karim Matmour (Reds)
Could have stolen the headlines with one of several chances against the Mariners, but the Algeria international still turned in his best performance to date as the Cup Final looms.
Mark Milligan (Victory)
Showed his international class by running the show on Sunday just four days after his exertions for Australia against Honduras in Sydney.
Dimitri Petratos (Jets)
Led his side's second half resistence with a swerving shot from distance that deceived Andrew Redmayne.
Eric Bautheac (Roar)
Joined Papadopoulos on the scoresheet and appears set to provide plenty more highlights over the season.
Bobo (Sydney FC)
The Brazilian should have had a hat-trick, but he put himself in the right position to score Sydney's second and also provided a fine assist for Ninkovic's opener.
Manager of the round: Kevin Muscat (Victory)
Clean sheet, three points away from home and first win of the season. Was a good weekend for Victory’s boss as he looks to climb back up the ladder.
