thumbnail Hello,

It was a week dominated by the Central Coast Mariners, while it was particularly difficult to select our front men - Check out who make Goal.com's A-League team of the week

A-League

Team Of The Week:

Week 5

Table/Results


GOALKEEPER

Eugene GALEKOVIC
Adelaide United

Galekovic certainly picked himself in Week 4's XI, making a number of miraculous saves and keeping Adelaide's lead intact.  Roar's Erik Paartalu must still be wondering how Galekovic managed to stop him scoring in just one of his superb stops.

DEFENDERS

Josh RISDON
Perth Glory

Josh MITCHELL
Newcastle Jets

Iain FYFE
Adelaide United

Adama TRAORE
Melbourne Victory

Risdon was able to have an attacking influence throughout the match against the Jets.  Not afraid to move up the field, he is one of Gary van Egmond's most valuable assets.  Despite the Jets enduring a sour match against the Glory, Mitchell was one of their best and helped to keep Newcastle in the game.  Galekovic may have received all the plaudits for keeping a clean sheet, but Fyfe was an important cog in the Reds' defensive machine. He was tireless, and made a number of crucial tackles in the 1-0 win.  Traore, meanwhile, once again showed how his pace and quick passing can be of vital importance in the new Postecoglou system at Victory.


MIDFIELDERS

Michael McGLINCHEY
Central Coast

Gui FINKLER
Melbourne Victory

Liam MILLER
Perth Glory

McGlinchey was one of the most influential midfielders in the Mariners' thumping win against Sydney.  He scored once and attacked the Sky Blues defenders all game.  Brazilian Finkler had his best game so far for the Victory and looks like he is settling in to Ange Postecoglou's game plan.  His exchange with Argentine team-mate Flores was sublime, and the two South Americans could cause defenders plenty more trouble this season.  Miller has become one of the Glory's most important players, and was influential in the 3-2 win over the Jets on Saturday. He created chances and was also defensively reliable.


FORWARDS

Marco ROJAS
Melbourne Victory

Daniel McBREEN
Central Coast

Tomas ROGIC
Central Coast

Rojas scored a double and looked threatening all match against the Phoenix, edging out team-mate Archie Thompson for a place in our XI.  His brace takes his tally to four this season - equal-top of the league - in an impressive effort for a 21-year-old winger.  Rogic put in a sublime effort for the Mariners and was rewarded with two goals in the win, as well as a call up for the national side. Rogic ran rings around a flat-footed Sydney FC defence and has been pivotal in his side's early season success.  McBreen leads the line after scoring his first-ever A-League hat trick in the 7-2 rout over the Sky Blues - a well-deserved one at that. The 35-year-old was helped by his Central Coast team mates, but was capable of finishing with precision.
