It's not easy picking the team of the week as, unfortunately, you can't pick a team of Marcos Rojases and Tom Rogics...

It's not easy picking the team of the week as, unfortunately, you can't pick a team of Marcos Rojases and Tom Rogics...

GK: Mark Paston Four points from their past two games on the road is a pretty good return for the Phoenix, and proves Ricki Herbert-s men so suffer travel sickness like they used to. And they can thank Mark Paston-s hands for that.

RB: Pedj Bojic Old reliable, the Mariners running man was a pain in Brisbane-s bum on Sunday afternoon. Always on the move and disrupting Roar-s attempts to use Henrique on the flank.

CB: Trent Sainsbury The youngster continues to impress at the Heart of the Mariners defence, eve n with Patrick Zwaanswijk missing, he and Zac Anderson dealt with a very feisty Berisha, and the rest of the Roar attack quite comfortably.

CB: Mark Milligan Shifted into centreback following Sam Gallagher-s premature dismissal, Milligan proved again why he-s the most important figure in Melbourne Victory-s defence. Even at 10 men, they rarely looked threatened.

LB: Aziz Behich Fresh from his Qantas Socceroos call-up, Behich also caught the Scout-s eye this week, with an eye-catching performance of attacking fullbackery. Best leftback in the A-League?

LM: Craig Goodwin The flying Jet didn't start the game against Heart but he certainly made a difference when he came on, including one determined and well-taken goal.

AM: Marcos Rojas The diminutive Kiwi has been one of the stars of the season so far and his pace, energy and willingness to run at opponents make the little fella a joy to watch. Go, little fella, go!

M: Richard Garcia Another man to make a return to the international team, Garcia is showing that his years in Europe have paid off. He-s the driving force in the Heart midfield and topped it off with two goals.

AM: Tom Rogic That Socceroos call-up has put another stride in Rogic-s already impressive step. In an otherwise hard-working Mariners side, Rogic is the twinkle in Graham Arnold-s eye.

RM: Fabio Ferreira Picked up from the state league, Ferreira was full of vim and vigour against an admittedly shameful Sydney FC side, but that doesn-t stop it being an excellent example of attacking football, finished with a brilliant goal. A bargain for Kossie.

F: Dario Vidosic Vidosic has been in fine fettle for the Reds, whatever the hell fettle is. He covered every blade of grass and his killer instinct gave Adelaide the deserved points.
