Brisbane Roar boss Jake Goodship was next best with 18%, while Perth Glory’s Bobby Despotovski the final nominee, picking up 7% of the votes.

It’s no surprise that Vidosic has taken out the gong for January, with City firing on all cylinders.

They have opened up a six point lead at the top of the ladder heading into the final few rounds and appear on course for the Premiers’ Plate.

City began January with a professional 2-0 win over Brisbane Roar in Queensland, before 4-0 and 2-0 wins over Canberra United and Newcastle Jets respectively.

Making their sensational run of form even more impressive is they haven’t conceded a goal since a 2-1 win over Sydney FC back in early December.
