Stats review: Goodwin joins Hyundai A-League elite with feat not seen in six years
Craig Goodwin had a big night out in Western Sydney on Friday, the catalyst for Adelaide United’s crucial win over the Wanderers at ANZ Stadium.
The speedy winger joined some illustrious company for his display in that clash, becoming the first player to create at least seven scoring chances in a game for the third time in a season.
It's the first time in six years that feat has been achieved. Meanwhile, Roy Krishna's incredible form continued to make Hyundai A-League history.
We take a look at the numbers behind their performances and more thanks to Opta data.
Goodwin matches Hyundai A-League's best
Goodwin is enjoying quite the season for Adelaide United.
The 27-year-old was the match-winner in a 2-1 victory over the Western Sydney Wanderers, scoring in the second half after Roly Bonevacia had cancelled out Vince Lia's opener.
He was at his dangerous best once more, creating seven chances and in doing so became just the third player to reach that mark three times since Opta started keeping the statistic in 2012/13, joining Thomas Broich and Aaron Mooy.
Goodwin is already up to seven league goals this season, bettering his previous career-high of six set in 2014/15 only just over halfway through the campaign.
Adelaide's latest win over the Wanderers means they are now unbeaten in their past seven league meetings with Western Sydney.
Krishna makes history in thrilling draw
Krishna is on fire for the in-form Wellington Phoenix.
The star forward scored a brace in the Phoenix's 3-3 draw with Melbourne Victory, becoming the first player in Hyundai A-League history to net multiple goals in three consecutive games.
David Williams had earlier cancelled out Ola Toivonen's opener, but second-half goals from James Troisi and Kosta Barbarouses saw Victory grab a come-from-behind point.
Wellington extended their unbeaten run to nine games and with Krishna firing, there are no signs of their fine form slowing down any time soon.
City can't find target against Perth again
Perth Glory have seemingly found a way to contain Melbourne City.
The league leaders picked up a point at AAMI Park in a 0-0 draw between two top-six teams.
TALKING POINTS: Victory show mark of Champions in Hyundai A-League game of the season
HEROIC MOMENTS: Relentless Roy masters the art of all-round forward display
Incredibly, City were unable to find a shot on target against Perth as their woes in attack continue.
It is just the second time this season a team has failed to produce a shot on target in a game. The previous occasion was also City when they faced the Glory in Round 7.
Roar held but stretch record over Mariners
The Central Coast Mariners are still waiting for a long-awaited win over Brisbane Roar.
Matt Millar's early opener put the Mariners on top, but Luke DeVere's goal on the stroke of half-time saw the Roar extend their unbeaten run against Central Coast to 14 Hyundai A-League games.
The Mariners last beat Brisbane in April 2014, and they will have to wait a little longer to end that unwanted record.
Brisbane's Jacob Pepper had 12 clearances against Central Coast, becoming just the eighth player to reach that mark this season.
Sky Blues continue Jets home dominance
Sydney FC likes hosting the Newcastle Jets.
The Sky Blues' 1-0 win saw them extend their unbeaten run at home to the Jets to nine games, keeping a clean sheet for the seventh time in that span.
Nigel Boogaard's first-half own goal was all that separated the teams at Jubilee Stadium, where Jason Hoffman was sent off in the second half for Newcastle.
They may not like visiting Sydney FC, but the Jets' defeat was their first away from home within New South Wales in six games.
