 Perth Glory edge ahead in A-League over inactive Victory

Sydney: Perth Glory held Melbourne City to a scoreless draw Sunday to extend their lead in Australia`s A-League to two points.

Glory extended their winless run to five matches at Melbourne`s AAMI Park and didn`t have a shot on target, leaving much of the attacking to finals-chasing City.

Melbourne Victory were frustrated by Brisbane`s big wet when their match with Roar was postponed on Friday, costing them a chance of taking over at the top of the standings.

An injury-time goal from Spaniard Sergio Cirio gifted Adelaide United a dramatic 2-1 over luckless Asian club champions Western Sydney Wanderers in Adelaide.

Cirio raced on to a superb cutback from Craig Goodwin and steered his shot into the bottom corner of the net with less than a minute to play.

The Wanderers were forced to see out the final 10 minutes of the match with 10 men after Socceroo international defender Matthew Spiranovic was given a second yellow card.

A stoppage-time free kick from Jason Hicks rescued a 2-2 draw for Wellington Phoenix against Newcastle Jets in Wellington on Sunday.

The fourth-ranked Phoenix looked to have wasted too many opportunities as the ninth-placed Jets scored twice off set pieces in the opening 20 minutes and threatened to pick up just their second win of the season.

The hard-tackling Jets had defender Ben Kantarovski sent off for a second yellow card in the 86th minute.

Sydney FC heaped more misery on Central Coast Mariners with a late double securing a 4-2 win at Allianz Stadium.

Austrian Marc Janko and Rhyan Grant scored a goal in each half to cancel out a brace from Mariners` Portuguese import Fabio Ferreira.

But super-sub Shane Smeltz came on late to regain the lead for Sydney with Janko striking again at the death to give Sydney their first home win in seven matches.
