Sydney:

Sydney FC ended their five-game A-League winless streak, beating Wellington Phoenix 2-1 on Sunday despite the absence of marquee recruit Alessandro Del Piero.

With the former Juventus striker at home nursing a right hamstring strain, Sydney won in the New Zealand capital, dominating the match throughout to finally pick up three points after four losses and a draw.

Under new coach Frank Farina, Sebastian Ryall and Rhyan Grant scored for last-placed Sydney and the 10-man Sky Blues survived a late scare as Jeremy Brockie netted a stoppage-time penalty.

In the other Sunday match, Japanese import Shinji Ono's penalty in the 87th minute gave the first-year Western Sydney Wanderers a 1-0 win over Brisbane Roar.
