A-League Men What’s your team’s story: Round 18 (Season 2022/23)

Adelaide United: They showcased their depth

Adelaide United had a few injuries and a suspension to their left-back, Ryan Kitto. Despite that, you wouldn’t have known it as their performance warranted a result.

Brisbane Roar: A new coach, with the right approach

Brisbane Roar sacked their coach Warren Moon, which is unfortunate. New Brisbane Roar coach Nick Green made them play a more attacking brand of football and they scored two goals.

Central Coast Mariners: Disappointed to drop two points

Central Coast Mariners would be upset they conceded a goal in the 94th minute, even though they were down to ten men.

Macarthur FC: They’re in a spot of bother

Macarthur FC were one goal down in the third minute and down to ten men in the sixth minute. They were inevitably obliterated 4-nil by Western Sydney Wanderers.

Melbourne City: Got the job done

Melbourne City played well considering they were without arguably the best player in the A-League, Matthew Leckie. They won 3-2, despite not playing their best football.

Melbourne Victory: Back on the bottom of the table

Melbourne Victory would be upset that they conceded a goal in the 87th minute. They didn’t play well, even though Adelaide United were missing players.

Newcastle Jets: A game they should’ve won, but that’s football

Newcastle Jets had 64% possession and two more shots on target than Western United, but still lost!

Perth Glory: Struggling away from home

Perth Glory aren’t getting wins when they play away from home, it’s as simple as that.

Sydney FC: Not bad, despite losing

Sydney FC played some decent football, but let in two goals in the opening 13 minutes. That’s something you can’t do against Melbourne City.

Wellington Phoenix: A good point on the road

Wellington Phoenix claimed a point in the 94th minute. They did well to get to get a result away from home.

Western Sydney Wanderers: An easy day at the office

Western Sydney Wanderers played with one more player from the sixth minute onwards, in a game that was like a training drill at times. Despite that, it was a much needed win for them.

Western United: They were fortunate

Western United would be stoked that they won 3-1. They were winning 1-nil after 21 minutes, but their goalkeeper Jamie Young made four quality saves, at that point in time.
