Australian Football: Sydney need a miracle says Corica

Sydney FC coach Steve Corica admits that his side need a miracle if they are to play finals after they slipped to a 3-2 defeat against Adelaide United.

The Sky Blues were hoping to finish in the top six and play finals but they need other results to go for them between now and the end of the season.

Chasing pack

Sydney sit in fifth place on the ladder but most of the teams below them have four games in hand. Macarthur in seventh have three games and are just two points behind Corica’s men.

Sydney now jet off on Asian Champions League duty and Corica is not expecting them to be in the top six when they return.

"We need a miracle now to be honest. Now we've got two games left, everyone else has got three or four," Corica said after the loss to Adelaide.

"We can just concentrate on the last two games when we get back from Vietnam try and pick up six points, but it's in everyone else's hands now."

Champions League hopes

Sydney will be hurting after Adelaide won the game five minutes in to stoppage time at the end but Corica says it is important they pick themselves up and go again.

"It (the ACL) is a different competition, it's a new start," Corica added. "But of course that (the loss to Adelaide) is going to sting them it's going to hurt, it should hurt, because they were in control of that game."
