Sydney back to winning ways
Sydney FC went back to winning ways after beating the North Queensland Fury 4-1 in round 17 of the A-League.
Before this win Sydney had lost three consecutive matches and were in danger of losing the second spot on the ladder.
Newcastle United continued with their resurgence beating rock bottom Adelaide United 2-nil at Hindmarsh Stadium.
Before last week the Jets had never won away from home this season and now they have notched two away wins and scoring five goals in the process and conceding just one.
The result pushed the Jets to sixth position on the ladder and this is not bad for a team that was anchoring the ladder not so long ago.
Good news for Adelaide though is that the Fury lost and therefore remain a point ahead of them and a -13 goal difference.
Elsewhere there were draws for leaders Melbourne Victory against Wellington Phoenix and Brisbane held Perth Glory 1-all at home .
The Gold Coast United managed to win their match 2-1 against the Central Coast Mariners after trailing at half-time.
This is only the third time this season that an A-League team trailing at half time has gone on to win and its also the second time for a home team to do so.
