Sydney FC continued their perfect start to their A-League campaign with a 1-0 away win in Wellington after an injury time winner was slotted home by Serbian Milos Ninkovic in the 92nd minute.
Melbourne City dropped their first points of the season despite equalising twice to a rampant Andy Keogh lead Perth Glory side. Despite this they have remained at equal favouritism for the A-League championship with Sydney FC at $4.50.
Melbourne Victory also moved into $5.50 from $6 after their pulsating win at the Champions, Adelaide United. Marco Rojas netted a 92nd minute goal to give Victory all three points. Victory started the season as $5 favourites but managed only one point from their first two games.
Brisbane Roar remain at $9 for title after winning their first game of the season in Gosford against the Mariners. The result means the Mariners have not won a league match in 13 attempts. Thomas Kristensen scored the only goal of the match.
The Wanderers also remain at $9 after playing out an entertaining 2-2 draw with Newcastle at their temporary home of Spotless Stadium. It was one that got away for Tony Popovic’s men though after leading the match by two goals.
The biggest sliders of the round are the Champions, Adelaide United who moved from $11 to $13 after conceding late against the Melbourne Victory. The loss was the second game in a row where they have conceded late winners at home.
Sydney FC will be looking to keep their perfect start alive when they travel up the F3 on Saturday to face the Jets while the Wanderers host the Mariners who are languishing in second last position.
Victory host the Phoenix to close out the round in the Melbourne Cup eve fixture at Melbourne’s AAMI Park.
