Australian football: Sydney on a roll after Glory win

Sydney FC coach Steve Corica is hoping his side can carry on building some momentum after picking up another morale-boosting win over Perth Glory on Saturday night.

The 2-0 win moved Sydney back into the top six of the A-League and Corica's men are now priced at 15/8 to play finals football at the end of the campaign.

Big revenge win

Sydney FC had lost on home soil to Glory earlier in the season but took out revenge in the reverse fixture thanks to goals from Kosta Barbarouses and Patrick Yazbek.

The win came a few days after they hammered Kaya FC 5-0 in the AFC Champions League and Corica is hoping his team are finally back on track following a disappointing run of results.

"Definitely I think so. We're building on it," Corica said after the win. "We obviously needed that three points. It probably wasn't our best performance, but it was more important the three points in the end.

"Until that second goal went in, (I felt) fairly nervous. We've been conceding a few goals of late. It's pleasing when you win, especially with a clean sheet."

Barbarouses fears allayed

Barbarouses was making just his second start of an injury-hit season and there were fears he may have picked up another knock after leaving the field in 77th minute.

However Corica dismissed any concerns after the game.

"He's fine. He's been out injured, so it's only his second start of the season. He was just tired," Corica added.
