Impressive Moss left helpless in goal

-

Despite the Wellington Phoenix’s lackluster start to the Hyundai A-League season, the performances of goalkeeper Glen Moss have been more than impressive for the New Zealand based outfit.

Situated behind a team that has looked nothing but flimsy in the defensive end, Moss has done little to justify his teams position at the bottom end of the table.

Last night’s performance against Adelaide was just one in a collection of many fine performances that should warrant a better result from the misfiring side.

Neither of Henrique’s top class goals found out the Keeper out, and he made a string of top class saves to boot.

It’s the sort of form that has seen him recalled into the New Zealand international team in recent weeks, and if it continues will surely start to capture the attention of more high profile teams.

In truth, lasts night’s loss in Adelaide could have easily been four or five were it not for Moss’s timely interventions, an ever present theme in the Phoenix’s slow start to the season.

With the experience of captain Andrew Durante and former Serie A defender Marco Rossi sitting in front of him it is a wonder how the side have managed to ship 14 goals in the opening weeks.

Although not an applaud-worthy statistic, there are three sides that have conceded more goals further up the table.

It is at the offensive end of the pitch where the ‘Nix are truly failing to capitalize on the performances of Moss.

Six goals in eight games is a poor total for a side with the ‘Nix’s attacking capabilities which looks even worse when taking into account that striker Roy Krishna has scored five of them.

The sort of performances Moss is producing in goal warrant a far better collective effort from a Phoenix side that has looked lost for large spells of the season.

Despite consecutive 2-0 wins before the international break, the team has failed to find the back of the net in four of six games.

It’s a worrying trend for the Phoenix who find themselves sitting at the bottom of the A-League Ladder (though with a game in hand).

As the team heads to Hamilton to face the Jets next weekend, Moss is one of the few players who can hold their heads high

It’s not difficult to see why reserve keeper Lewis Italiano has only managed to make 2 appearances during his time at the club.

Moss’ form making him the first name on whoever is now set to manage the Wellington Phoenix teamsheet following Ernie Merrick’s departure on Monday.
