thumbnail Hello,

Western Sydney Wanderers made it 10 straight wins and got several nominations for their reward - So who else made Goal Australia's A-League team of the week?

A-League

Team Of The Week:

Week 25

Table/Results


GOALKEEPER

Ivan NECEVSKI
Sydney FC

Glenn Moss of Wellington might consider himself unlucky here.  But it was impossible to go past Necevski here.  Thrust back into the starting XI after Vedran Janjetovic was late for the match, Necevski conceded after just three minutes but superb thereafter.  Victory may have proved somewhat profligate in front of goal, but when they did the veteran proved impossible to get past.

DEFENDERS

Trent SAINSBURY
Central Coast

Andrew DURANTE
Wellington Phoenix

Patrick ZWAANSWIJK
Central Coast

Scott GALLOWAY
Melbourne Victory

Sainsbury and Galloway played largely in other positions in their weekend games, but for our purposes the versatile duo operate in the full-back positions.  Sainsbury and centre-back Zwaanswijk were superb in the Mariners' determined 1-0 win over Brisbane Roar, earning them their places.  Galloway has wasted little time making a place in Victory's XI his own despite being just 17, and he was again superb in the 1-1 draw with Sydney FC on Saturday.  Durante completes the back four after leading Wellington to a brilliant win in Perth, dealing the Glory's finals' hopes a serious blow.


MIDFIELDERS

Connor PAIN
Melbourne Victory

Mateo POLJAK
Western Sydney

Terry ANTONIS
Sydney FC

Craig GOODWIN
Newcastle Jets

Pain seems to be going from strength to strength for Victory, and he again ensured the absence of Marco Flores was not keenly felt by his side with a positive attacking performance against the Sky Blues.  Poljak takes the defensive role, having revelled in the rain against Melbourne Heart.  Antonis wins his second-successive place in the Goal team of the week, continuing his positive end of the season with an enterprising display against Victory.  Goodwin patrols the left of this side, showing signs against Adelaide Heart he has returned to his devastating best after a mid-season slump in form.


FORWARDS

Mark BRIDGE
Western Sydney

Labinot HALITI
Western Sydney
 

Bridge again makes our team, showing the type of movement, verve and class that has made him among the first picked for Tony Popovic's Western Sydney side.  Haliti was the main beneficiary of Bridge's outstanding match, and scored a double in the Wanderers' victory over Heart.  Perhaps considered more an impact player than a reliable starter, Haliti has timed his run of form perfectly as the Wanderers approach their maiden finals campaign.
