Perth holds Sydney to stay in the hunt
Perth Glory held league leaders Sydney FC to get the precious point that keeps them in the finals places in round 22 of the A-League.
The draw means Sydney increase their lead at the top to four points after Melbourne Victory lost their second consecutive match. With just five rounds to go Sydney are in the right place at the right time.
Victory lost 3-2 to ten men Newcastle Jets and are now four points adrift of Sydney and just a point ahead of third placed Gold Coast United.
Adelaide got a valuable point against Gold Coast but they remain anchored to the bottom of the table.
Wellington Phoenix are up to fifth place on the table after beating Brisbane Roar 3-1 at home. This was the Roar's second consecutive loss after losing to the Gold Coast in the last round.
This week I will show a first half table so far this season. This table considers only the result up to half time and after the next round I will take a look at the second half table.
