Roy O'Donovan and Joey Champness both grabbed braces in that win and Matt Simon did likewise in Gosford.

The Central Coast captain converted a second-half penalty to go with a hammer of a free-kick as Alen Stajcic side's prevailed 3-1 against Western Sydney Wanderers, for whom Mark Bridge scored in his 250th Hyundai A-League appearance.
