The Dugout: Second Edition

-

DugoutDigging up all the action from the Hyundai A-League in the week that was.

 

These two teams are a bit of alright:

  1. Melbourne City:

Melbourne put on an impressive show last Thursday. They are having a good run, and despite not leading the ladder, they’ve got some serious weapons to use. An unfortunate result last night however leaves fans reassessing their faith in JVS.

  1. Western Sydney Wanderers:

Wanderers are finally on the right track, stealing the game from Newcastle with two late goals. After a slow start to the season they toppled Melbourne City last night and are back on track.

Playa’ can play:

Bruno Fornaroli showed his skills with an impressive second half performance against Adelaide United last week. With five goals so far this season Fornaroli is showing us what he’s made of in spectacular fashion.

Snakes and ladders:

No changes to the top four this week, however Melbourne City and Wanderers are climbing the ladder to fifth and sixth place respectively while Wellington has slid down to seventh place. Mariners are slowly scaling to eighth place, while Perth slithers down to ninth and Adelaide still sits at the bottom.

Get this fact into you:

Brisbane Roar have had 21 shots against them so far this season, while Sydney FC have faced only seven!

Where it’s at:

The game to watch this week is definitely Sydney FC vs Melbourne Victory. A rematch of the Grand Final is always a good game and with the reigning champs wanting to step up, it will be a tough match for both teams.

Dude is a young gun:

Jake McGing is one to watch this week. The young Central Coast defender has started this season off with promise, and will surely be hungry to prove himself in this weeks’ F3 Derby.

Great expectations for the weekend:

 

Newcastle Jets v Central Coast Mariners: The F3 Derby will be a great chance for Newcastle to prove they are serious this season, looking poised to take the win in front of the home crowd.

Brisbane Roar FC v Perth Glory: I think everyone is with me when I say it will be a big shock if Perth come away with a win on Sunday. Roar are far ahead of Glory in many ways and they’re definitely predicted to take the win.
