Round Seven Preview (Hyundai A-League)
All six rounds of football that have been played in the A-League have been extremely entertaining and have been of high standard. The League has had an attacking flavour. There has been fresh ideas with five out of the ten teams competing in the League having different coaches from last season. Round seven promises to be an enthralling one with all four games even and no clear winner in any of the matches.
Mariners v Reds Preview
The Mariners had their first victory of the Season against last years title winners the Sky Blues. They will look to keep the momentum up. The Reds have a few injuries, but the FFA cup finalists shouldn’t be taken lightly. Meanwhile the Mariners have kept a clean sheet in their last two games. It promises to be an entertaining contest.
Mariners Game Changer: Andrew Hoole
Reds Blues Game Changer: Ben Garuccio
My Prediction: Mariners
Roar v City Preview
The Roar go into the game with a lot of injuries. They have shown character to get something out of three of their six games so far. However, they are yet to collect an elusive victory, while City have only lost of one of their six matches so far. There only blemish came against last years champions the Sky Blues where they lost the game. They have claimed just one point out of a possible six points in their last two matches. Both teams are in need of the three points. Hopefully it is an entertaining contest.
Roar Game Changer: Jack Hingert
City Game Changer: Michael Jakobsen
My Prediction: Roar
Wanderers v Phoenix (Game postponed)
Sky Blues v Jets Preview
The Jets go into Round seven as one of only two unbeaten teams. They have scored fifteen goals, which is four more than the next best of eleven goals. The Sky Blues in my opinion put in their worst performance last round. They will look to bounce back and will be eager to claim the three points on offer.
Sky Blues Game Changer: Josh Brillante
Jets Game Changer: Jason Hoffman
My Prediction: Jets
Glory v Victory Preview
Remarkably the Victory sit second last on the A-League ladder despite getting something in four out of their six matches so far this Season. Leroy George has been a revelation. Along with Absalonsen he has been the best new comer to the League. Despite having lost half their games the Glory sit in fifth place on the ladder. Both managers like to play an attacking style of play meaning that the game should be a fascinating one.
Glory Game Changer: Alex Grant
Victory Game Changer: Leroy George
My Prediction: Glory
