  • Sydney FC have suffered back-to-back Hyundai A-League defeats for the first time since April 2016.
  • The second of that run was also their last league loss at Allianz Stadium (2-0 to Adelaide United).

  • This is the second time this season that Aloisi's side have won back-to-back games.
  • Roar have now won three consecutive games - the last time they managed more was a four-game streak from December 2013 to January 2014.
  • Matt McKay has two goals for the campaign, his best regular season return since 2014-15.
  • Jacob Pepper netted just the third Hyundai A-League goal of his career and first in over six years (his last goals came as a double against Melbourne Victory in March 2012).
