Keeper: Ivan Necevski (Mariners) - Big Ivan redeemed his earlier showing at Allianz Stadium with several fine stops against his former side, including that late penalty save from Bernie Ibini. Was in regal form in front of his one-time fans.
2 of 14
Defenders: Michael Zullo (Sydney FC) - Put Holosko’s goal on a platter against Central Coast and looked every bit like a man with a point to prove after seeing two teammates win Caltex Socceroos selection.
3 of 14
Taylor Regan (Reds) - Exactly the type of defender Adelaide needed with their backs to the wall against Brisbane. They wouldn't have had a point let alone three without Regan's mighty effort.
4 of 14
Rhyan Grant (Sydney FC) - Took a couple of knocks but still flung his body to block Jake McGing’s last-gasp chance. His extraordinary engine was on full display in the 1-0 win.
5 of 14
Midfielders: Neil Kilkenny (City) - Clearly at home in midfield with a licence to drop deep, the vocal veteran guided City through every step of their 4-0 win over Newcastle.
6 of 14
Mitch Nichols (WSW) - At his very best when it mattered early against Wellington, playing a part in both of Wanderers' first two goals as they ran over the top of Phoenix.
7 of 14
Nico Martinez (WSW) - Silky, creative and on the scoresheet in Western Sydney's 3-1 win over Wellington. Everything Tony Popovic will expect of the little genius throughout the run-in.
8 of 14
Forwards: Brendon Santalab (WSW) - Took his brace well at Spotless Stadium to become Western Sydney's all-time leading goalscorer. A well-earned milestone for the evergreen forward.
9 of 14
Fahid Ben Khalfallah (Victory) - Problems? What problems? Back in favour at AAMI Park and back mesmerising opposition defences, scoring one and assisting another in the win over Perth.
10 of 14
Nick Fitzgerald (City) - Gave direction to City's drifting second-half with skilful end product, including a classy finish and smart assist in a match-turning cameo.
11 of 14
Besart Berisha (Victory) - Mark this man down for a huge Finals Series. His equaliser against Perth was one thing, but the assist for Fahid Ben Khalfallah was pure genius.
12 of 14
Coach of the split round: Gui Amor (Reds) - It’s been some week in Adelaide. A roller-coaster ACL 3-3 draw had the home fans on their feet midweek; then this Sunday a last-gasp win, their fourth of the season, was equally thrilling as the Reds show some life in the final stages of the season.
