Adelaide stun Sydney in round 11
Ten-men Adelaide United beat Sydney FC 2-1 and with that loss Sydney ended in second spot as the Gold Coast overcame an in-form Perth Glory side to reclaim top spot.
With that win Adelaide moved into sixth position and this was aided by Brisbane Roar losing 3-nil to the Central Coast Mariners who maintained their fifth position.
The Glory slipped to fourth position.
Things stayed the same at the bottom with North Queensland Fury getting yet another draw against Wellington Phoenix and Newcastle Jets losing.
The draw for Wellington Phoenix means that the Phoenix becomes the first team in the A-League to have six consecutive draws and this week I will show the updated recent form. Next week I will show the full form table.
