Adelaide beat Sydney in A-League

5:16 am on 5 January 2009

Adelaide United have returned to the summit of football's A-League while also consigning former boss John Kosmina's Sydney FC to another week of uncertainty with a 2-0 victory at Adelaide Oval.

Sydney's defeat gave them a quartet of losses from as many matches, and leaves them a forlorn six points out of the league top four with only three fixtures remaining.
