The Dugout: Round 13 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

  • Brisbane Roar: Roar managed to deny a win for the in-form Melbourne City squad, securing second place on the ladder this week.
  • Adelaide United: After a less than impressive start to the season, a 3-0 win over Wellington managed to add some credibility to the Reds’ A-League campaign.

Playa’ can play

Mark Bridge has proved a fan favourite this year and his goal against the Jets in Round 12 proved that he’s the gift that keeps on giving.

Snakes and ladders

With the only change being Newcastle Jets dropping to eighth and Adelaide United climbing to seventh on goal difference, someone must have lost the dice in this game of snakes and ladders. The top teams are really starting to distinguish themselves but there is half a season of football yet to come and a lot could change.

Get this fact into you

Melbourne City and Western Sydney have taken 183 shots each so far this season while Newcastle Jets have only taken 98.

Where it’s at

This week’s key match up is Melbourne City vs Sydney FC. Both are on 20 points and with Melbourne dominating goal difference, Sydney need the three to get ahead.

Melbourne are coming off a convincing loss and Sydney from a dominant win which means it should be a fight worth watching.

Dude is a young gun

18 year-old George Mells has an impressive youth career behind him, spending time at Chelsea and Southampton over the past five years. Having played 11 games for Adelaide so far this season, there’s high hopes for this young gun.

Great expectations for the weekend

Brisbane Roar vs Perth Glory: After a dominant win over Melbourne City, Brisbane should be full of confidence taking on ninth place Glory. With twice as many points so far this season surely Roar will take the three with ease.

Newcastle Jets vs Melbourne Victory:
Newcastle have proven to be Victory’s bogey team in the past and it will surely benefit them if this trend continues. The reigning Champions won’t go down without a fight as they attempt to climb back to the top of the ladder while the Jets desperately need a win to build some confidence and belief in the squad.
