thumbnail Hello,

West was best in our XI week, but it was not the Wanderers who dominated, for once - So who made the cut in Goal Australia's team of the week?

A-League

Team Of The Week:

Week 26

Table/Results


GOALKEEPER

Danny VUKOVIC
Perth Glory

The A-League are simply spoilt for goalkeepers, and it was no more evident than in Vukovic's superb showing for Perth Glory against Melbourne Victory.  Vukovic's outstanding double save was worth the price of admittance alone, but to do it when the result was so important to Glory's knife-edged finals hopes means it was worth minting.

DEFENDERS

Josh RISDON
Perth Glory

Zac ANDERSON
Central Coast

Tiago CALVANO
Sydney FC

Rhyan GRANT
Sydney FC

Risdon had been patient in his search for a first A-League goal, and waited until the 94th minute to hit his first - dramatically sealing a superb 3-2 win over Victory in the process.  It crowned what had been a solid performance from the 20-year-old right-back.  Anderson would be among the strongest defenders in the air, but showed he was no mug with the ball at his feet as part of the Mariners' defence that kept Adelaide scoreless.  Sydney FC duo Tiago and Grant make up the rest of the back four, having played key roles in finally bringing the previously unstoppable Wanderers' train to a halt.


MIDFIELDERS

Ivan FRANJIC
Brisbane Roar

Liam MILLER
Perth Glory

Thomas BROICH
Brisbane Roar

Iain RAMSAY
Adelaide United

Franjic continues to flourish for Brisbane since moving into midfield.  Freed of the defensive shackles he had at right-back, the 25-year-old was at his attacking best in the win over Heart.  Miller anchors the midfield having clearly been the best player on the pitch in Glory's win over Victory, and makes a play for being the most impressive player of the round.  Broich challenges him for the latter, scoring one of the goals of the season against Heart.  Unsurprisingly, he has been crucial to the Roar's march towards finals.  Ramsay makes up the midfield despite being part of the Reds' loss to the Mariners, going close with a strike to rival Broich's that clattered off the crossbar with Justin Pasfield helpless.


FORWARDS

Mark BRIDGE
Western Sydney

Chris HAROLD
Perth Glory
 

Bridge is back in our side, though this week is not joined by any Wanderers team-mates.  He looked the most likely for his side in Saturday's Sydney derby, going close on several occasions.  Former Gold Coast United youth Harold wins his first team-of-the-week place courtesy of a typically hard-working showing, while he also scored the opener in his side's win over Victory.
