Dominant Sydney FC steamroll Perth Glory

Sydney FC remain unbeaten after a  dominant showing against Perth, who had  Liam Reddy to thank after the Glory keeper's stellar display kept the loss down to  just 2-0 at Allianz Stadium on Friday night. 

In overcast conditions, Sydney FC were a class above their opponent, running over the top of Kenny Lowe's men with an awesome display and a fully deserved 2-0 win - even if the scoreline flattered the visitors somewhat. 

Incredibly there were three penalties in the game - one missed and two converted.
