Opta reveals every club's best player from Round 14
What do the stats reveal about the top Hyundai A-League performers from Round 14?
We've crunched the numbers from an enthralling weekend to shine a light on your club's best, thanks to Opta data.
Adelaide United - Craig Goodwin
The Reds winger had a night out against the Wanderers, scoring the winning goal as well as providing an assist in the 2-1 win.
But that wasn’t all Goodwin managed at ANZ Stadium, also creating seven scoring chances in a game for the third time this season.
No other player has done so more times across the last six Hyundai A-League seasons combined.
Brisbane Roar – Luke DeVere
How Roar have missed the presence of the towering defender for much of this campaign.
Only two players - Roar teammate Jacob Pepper (12) and Wellington’s Tom Doyle (9) - made more clearances than DeVere.
The tough-tackling centre-back also won 10 of 18 duels contested and scored Roar’s equalising goal.
Central Coast Mariners – Kye Rowles
Up against his former club, the young defender was one of the Mariners’ best in the 1-1 draw against Brisbane.
Rowles attempted four tackles, the most of any player with a 100% tackle success rate for the round.
He also made six clearances in a superb all-round display.
Melbourne City – Bart Schenkeveld
The Dutchman continued his outstanding campaign, playing a key role for City as they became the first team to keep Perth Glory scoreless this season.
Schenkeveld made four interceptions and three clearances to not give Glory striker Andy Keogh a sniff.
He also was unsuccessful with just two of 57 pass attempts which is outstandingly accurate.
Melbourne Victory – Kosta Barbarouses
The Kiwi international is arguably enjoying his best season in the Hyundai A-League.
Barbarouses scored the late equaliser as Victory came back to draw 3-3 with Wellington Phoenix on Sunday to be one of three players (Ola Toivonen, Goodwin) to both score and assist a goal this round.
He also made a team-high three shots on target from just four attempts.
Newcastle Jets – Glen Moss
The experienced keeper just gets better with age.
Moss made a joint round-high of five saves with a save percentage of 83%.
That number for the Kiwi international gloveman was the best of any keeper to have made more than two saves for the round.
Perth Glory – Alex Grant
Grant has taken his game to another level under Tony Popovic and was at his bullish best in the goalless draw with City.
Only Victory skipper Carl Valeri (5) won more tackles than Alex Grant (4) in Round 14,
Grant also won nine duels - the most of any player with a 100% duel success rate for the round.
Sydney FC – Ben Warland
Injury meant this was Warland’s first appearance of the season for Steve Corica’s Sky Blues.
And the youngster was excellent as Sydney FC kept a clean sheet in the 1-0 win over the Jets.
Warland, who was an early substitute, made five clearances, won half of the six duels he contested and finished with 44 pass attempts.
Wellington Phoenix – David Williams
While Roy Krishna is generating plenty of headlines with his superb goal-scoring form, Williams has also been a vital part of the Phoenix’s attack.
Williams made a shot on target once every 12 touches in the 3-3 draw with Victory, the second most frequent of any player (min. 3 shots on target).
Western Sydney Wanderers – Roly Bonevacia
In a youthful Wanderers squad, Bonevacia led by example in the unfortunate 2-1 loss to the Reds.
The highlight for the Dutch playmaker was his stunning free-kick to equalise early in the second half, one of four shots he had at goal.
Bonevacia also contested a team-high 16 duels.
