A-League

Team Of The Week:

Week 4

Table/Results


GOALKEEPER

Mark BIRIGHITTI
Newcastle Jets

The Newcastle shot-stopper put in a wonderful performance against Victory, keeping the Jets in the game in the first half with some miraculous stops - first from a Marco Rojas shot and then an Adama Traore thunderbolt.

DEFENDERS

Pedj BOJIC
Central Coast

Trent SAINSBURY
Central Coast

Michael BEAUCHAMP
Western Sydney

CASSIO
Adelaide United

Bojic scored a fantastic goal from a free kick and looked threatening all day on the right in an otherwise dull game against Heart, while team-mate Sainsbury was again reliable in the middle of defence and made it impossible for his opponents to find an avenue to goal.  Captain Beauchamp was one of the key reasons for the Wanderers' first ever victory, keeping a threatening Brisbane attack scoreless.  Brazilian Cassio, meanwhile, showed flair and creativity on the left, scoring a superb - albeit controversial - goal.


MIDFIELDERS

Liam MILLER
Perth Glory

Jobe WHEELHOUSE
Newcastle Jets

Ali ABBAS
Sydney FC

Miller was the Glory's best player in the loss to Sydney and has had a great start to the season, controlling the midfield and creating chances for those around him.  He was unlucky to be involved in Sydney's second goal, having been sold short by a Danny Vukovic throw.  Jets captain Wheelhouse was able to shut down Victory's Marcos Flores and control the ball movement in the centre of the park. He had a perfect mixture of attack and defence in his game.  Abbas created a goal with his through ball and gave the Glory plenty of headaches on the left.


FORWARDS

Mark BRIDGE
Western Sydney

Emile HESKEY
Newcastle Jets

Jeromino NEUMANN
Adelaide United

 Bridgewas back to his confident and imposing best, and was rewarded with scoring the Wanderers' first-ever goal which led to their first victory.  Heskey showed how a true poacher should play, scoring twice to inject the Jets' with confidence and potency.  He may move a bit slower these days, but he still has the nous to get on the scoresheet.  Neumann's game was clouded in controversy after he was accused of diving, but his two goals were enough for him to make the team of the week.
