The Dugout: Round 11 of the A-League

-

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

Dugout

This team is a bit of alright

Melbourne City: Melbourne City have solidified their dominance with some massive performances in the past few rounds and a win in the Melbourne Derby has sealed the deal for the club.

Playa’ can play

Nigel Boogaard has proved instrumental to the Jets defensive structure this season. While the club is not going quite as well as they would have wanted, the captain is keeping a bit of structure within the squad in terms of defence.

Snakes and ladders

Wanderers are staying on top of the board after consistent performances for several weeks now and Brisbane are hot on their heels. Melbourne City’s derby win has kept their form coming as they sit at third. Sydney FC, Melbourne Victory and Wellington Phoenix are keeping it close in the middle, while the Newcastle Jets, Perth Glory and Adelaide United are lingering at the bottom with not much of a gap to bridge. Central Coast seem to be in a league of their own sitting last with only five points to their name.

Brisbane Roar vs Melbourne City is a must-see. Melbourne City has had practically flawless form in the past weeks and Brisbane is sitting just in front of them on the ladder so the battle could easily go either way.

Dude is a young gun:

Jaushua Sotirio has recently signed a contract extension with Wanderers and despite not making the starting line up just yet, has a bright football future ahead of him.

Great expectations for the weekend:

Adelaide United v Wellington Phoenix: Adelaide seem to be having a comeback run at the moment after a shaky start to the season and with a frustrating draw against Newcastle last round they’ll surely put up a fight when Wellington comes to town.

Sydney FC v Central Coast Mariners: Not many people have much faith in the Mariners who trail 12 points behind Sydney FC, and with the home advantage Sydney will be looking to dominate. Will Mariners be able to secure their second win of the season?

Melbourne Victory v Perth Glory: Having dropped down to fifth after their five minutes at the top, Victory are certainly not going to be happy and will be fierce in their campaign to be back to back champions. Perth Glory managed to hold out against Western Sydney last round, will they be able to do it again?
