On the other hand, the Sky Blues showed why they take their foreign scouting so seriously.

Brazilian Bobo (one goal) and Poland international Adrian Mierzejewski (two goals) confirming Sydney's impressive comeback win with a clinical display in front of goals. 

The pair has now scored an impressive 33 goals between them in a total of 53 for the team. 

And with 20 fouls conceded (compared to 12 by Sydney FC), Wanderers will rue giving away the foul for the Pole's moment of magic from a set piece.
