First-place Sydney FC returns to winning ways in A-League

SYDNEY (AP) Bobo scored twice as Sydney FC rebounded from its first loss in the A-League to beat Melbourne City 3-1 and remain well ahead in the standings.

Sydney's ambitious attempt to become the first team to end the regular season unbeaten ended last week when it was defeated by Western Sydney Wanderers in a fractious local derby, repercussions of which continued through the week.

The Wanderers were fined $20,000 by Football Federation Australia after its fans unfurled an obscene banner targeting Sydney coach Graham Arnold.
