Craig Goodwin has scored the most headed goals this season out of any player in the competition.

Wellington have conceded multiple goals in all but two of their preceding 10 visits to the city of churches.

Michael Jakobsen was immense as well in that victory, completing 94% of his passes, won six duels, made five clearances, and notched two interceptions.

Goalkeeper, Paul Izzo, recorded his sixth Hyundai A-League clean sheet of the season against Central Coast, making three saves in the process.
