Will Sydney FC and Gold Coast United serve up another thriller at Sydney Football Stadium? Be there and find out!

This Sunday, Sydney FC will be hoping the visit of Gold Coast United will spark memories that will help them get back to winning ways at their home ground.

The Sky Blues haven't won at Sydney Football Stadium since the last time Gold Coast United made the journey there, all the way back at the start of November.

But what a game that was! United looked set for a much needed away win as they flew into a two goal lead thanks to goals from Kristian Rees and Dylan MacAllister. However, the home side never stopped believing and put in an incredible display in the last 30 minutes to send The Cove into raptures.

Firstly, Bruno Cazarine pulled one back, then Nicky Carle showed sublime skill to create, and then score, his third goal in as many games, before an injury-time Karol Kisel penalty snatched three dramatic points!

It was one of the games of the season. If the entertainment on offer this Sunday is even half as good, it will still be a cracker, so get your ticket today and get ready to make some serious noise. It's time to turn Sydney Football Stadium into a fortress, and a clash against the league's bottom club might just offer the perfect opportunity to do just that.

The two teams have met again since that crazy night of five goals, in December, Gold Coast United went some way towards burying the ghost of that miserable experience in Sydney by breaking a run of five successive defeats with a goalless draw against the Sky Blues.

In a hard-fought affair at Skilled Park, there were nine yellow cards handed out, as both teams showed just how hard they are prepared to fight for Hyundai A-League points.

Gold Coast United will be looking for more luck in front of goal after another disappointing result last week. A late Wellington strike subjected them to a home defeat but Miron Bleiberg will be scratching his head for the second week running as he tries to work out how his players hadn't already sewn the game up by that stage. Despite dominating large portions of the match, United couldn't find the net and were made to pay for some criminally slack marking at the death. Still, Sydney should be warned that this weekend's opponents certainly aren't playing like a side at the foot of the ladder at the moment and, sooner or later, the goals are surely going to flow. Will it be this Sunday?

Sydney Cove, you have been in phenomenal voice all season but this Sunday you need to raise your already high-standards to the next level.

Turn the volume up as far as it will go and help your players rediscover that winning feeling at Sydney Football Stadium. With non-stop noise from the moment the team steps onto the pitch, you really can make all the difference. Play your part. Be the twelfth man!
