thumbnail Hello,

Central Coast have three players in the starting XI after dispatching Newcastle Jets, while Brisbane Roar and Sydney FC are also represented strongly

Danny Vukovic gets the nod between the sticks after an impressive performance for Perth Glory, despite his side losing 3-1 away to Western Sydney. If it hadn't been for the strong showing from the goalkeeper, the Wanderers' margin of victory might have been considerably greater.

Seb Ryall is picked on the right side of a three-man defence after his tremendous effort in Sydney's 5-0 thrashing of Melbourne Victory. And it's not necessarily his defensive efforts which get him a place in the Team of the Week. The 24-year-old stole the show by dribbling past two Victory players and forcing another to back off before dispatching the third goal of the game past Nathan Coe. Take a bow.

Trent Sainsbury was typically assured at the back for the Mariners in their emphatic F3 derby win at home to Newcastle, while Jon McKain emerged from Adelaide's somewhat haphazard 2-2 draw at home to Melbourne Heart with plenty of credit.

In a midfield that looks tough to get the ball off, Spiranovic occupies one of two holding roles after acquitting himself well following Tony Popovic's surprise decision to deploy him in front of the Wanderers defence at home to the Glory. Next to him is Luke Brattan, who has held his own alongside Matt McKay and Liam Miller to be one of Brisbane Roar's best-performed midfielders this season, and got Mike Mulvey's side out of jail with the winner at home to Wellington Phoenix on Friday night.

Further forward is Brattan's imperious team-mate Thomas Broich, the Wanderers' marquee man Shinji Ono and one of the stars of the weekend show, Anthony Caceres, whose stunning goal sent the Mariners on the way to their destruction of the Jets.

Caceres' colleague Daniel McBreen occupies one of two spots in the forward line after an equally well-taken goal at Bluetongue Stadium. He partners Ranko Despotovic, who opened the scoring in the rout at Etihad Stadium and terrorised Victory's uncertain backline for much of the game.
