A-League Team of the Week: Half-way hero Bosnar takes pride of place

The veteran centre-back is known for his thunderbolt free-kicks but it was a unusual set-piece that caught out the Jets backline in their derby clash at Bluetongue Stadium
Liam Reddy produced a solid display between the posts for Central Coast in their 3-1 derby win over the Jets, and certainly looked good in comparison to poor Mark Birighitti at the other end.

Reddy's Mariners colleague Eddy Bosnar was the man who embarrassed Birighitti and gets the nod in our typically suicidal three-man backline, earning extra points for his loopy celebration. He'll be helped out by Adelaide's versatile Osama Malik and Jets recruit David Carney, who acquitted himself reasonably well in the F3 derby, by his own, ah hem, high standards.

In a three-man midfield it's Perth Glory's scrapping skipper Jacob Burns, Wanderers pivot Aaron Mooy, unfortunate not to win the game in a 0-0 draw at home to Adelaide and Matt McKay, full of energy as 10-man Brisbane Roar earned a point away to Sydney FC.

In a top-heavy four-man attack we've got Victory pair James Troisi and Guilherme Finkler, who guided Kevin Muscat's team to a crucial three points away to Glory. They are joined by Reds playmaker Marcelo Carrusca and his Roar counter-part Thomas Broich, both influential figures for their respective teams this weekend.

They're going to have to keep the ball in advanced areas to avoid shipping goals with that exposed backline!
