These players stood out in Round 5

A rollercoaster round of A-League action saw three attackers bag crucial doubles as Perth Glory moved four points clear at the top of the table.

Two young Aussie defenders also impressed in Round 5 as they showed they're ready to step up when it counts for their sides. 

Here's Goal's Team of the Week for Round 5...Who's in yours? 

  • Glen Moss Newcastle Jets

    Glen Moss

    Was the busiest keeper in Round 5 yet somehow walked away with a clean sheet. Should have been tested more by a misfiring Wanderers attack, but was on hand when needed making five saves. 
  • Michael Marrone

    Michael Marrone

    The Reds right-back was a rock against Wellington and proved a real threat in attack laying on a delightful cross for Ken Ilso's first goal against the Nix. 
  • Kye Rowles

    Kye Rowles

    His side may have leaked three goals, but the 20 year old defender was superb at the back for the Mariners as he repeatedly frustrated Andy Keogh. Made three tackles on the night and was the main reason Glory's Irish striker failed to get on the score sheet for the first time this season. 
  • Shane Lowry

    Shane Lowry

    The only thing more surprising than his thumping header against Central Coast was the fact Lowry finished the match with a game-high 80 completed passes. The Glory defender proving he's more than just a brick wall at the back. 
  • Connor O'Toole

    Connor O'Toole

    The 21 year old is growing in confidence going forward and played his part in keeping Melbourne City's attack very quiet. 
  • Neil Kilkenny

    Neil Kilkenny

    The heart and soul of this Glory team right now with everything seemingly going through him. Two quality assists against the Mariners and he played a big hand in their first goal too. Kilkenny might just be Popovic's most valuable player right now. 
  • Keisuke Honda Melbourne Victory

    Keisuke Honda

    Far from his best performance for Victory but the Japanese star still stood up when it mattered most as he won and slotted home the decisive penalty. Also completed the most passes of any Melbourne player against Sydney FC. 
  • Dimitri Petratos Newcastle Jets

    Dimitri Petratos

    After not seeing any action with the Socceroos, Petratos had a point to prove against the Wanderers and was easily the Jets best. Picked up an unselfish assist along with creating two other chances. Also completed the most passes of any Newcastle player maintaining a game-high pass accuracy of 88 percent in the final third. 
  • Ken Ilso

    Ken Ilso

    Two shots and two goals for the Danish attacker who showed he could be the man to fill the Reds striker hole this season. Reads the game well and popped up exactly where he needed to be against the Nix. 
  • Perth Glory

    Chris Ikonomidis

    Another last-minute winner for the Glory attacker, who walked away with a clinical double against the Mariners. Not wasting anytime settling in at Perth and making the most of regular first-team football. 
  • Adam Taggart Brisbane Roar

    Adam Taggart

    Five goals from five games for the Brisbane Roar attacker, who once again could have had more against City. Though still not quite as sharp in front of goal as he could be, Taggart is getting in all the right areas with his two goals against Melbourne particularly clinical.
