Perth Glory finally, after having not won for a year, dismissed their
coach, replacing him with assistant David Mitchell. And, as was the
case with Sydney after their mid-season coaching switch, the
turnaround was immediate; with Mitchell's first game as coach
producing a win on the road against the highly fancied Newcastle Jets.
When Newcastle equalised early in the second half, it was a moment
when the Glory could have folded up like they have before. But this
time they played as men inspired, with Simpson immediately restoring
the lead. Goal-starved Rukavytsya then found his form, adding a
double to put the result beyond doubt and inject hope into the WA
side that they may have finally turned the corner.

John Aloisi converting a penalty to get Australia into the World Cup
was a moment football in Australia will never forget. His return to the
penalty spot in Australia was nowhere near as dramatic, but was a
valuable score for the Mariners, who after a scoreless first half against
Adelaide were able to complete a 2-0 victory and open a gap on top
of the premiership table.
For Adelaide, who were top of the table 2 weeks ago, it was a
disappointing result, and one which leaves them vulnerable should
Sydney FC or Melbourne Victory find form and enter the top 4. But for
Central Coast, the success story goes on; and hopes are high of
another finals appearance this season.
Central Coast Mariners 2 (J Aloisi 49pen, 59) Adelaide United 0.

Sydney FC have never won in Melbourne, and that record continued
when the A-League's bitterest rivals faced off on Saturday night.
Sydney had their chances to score, with Alex Brosque twice hitting
the woodwork; while Melbourne had opportunities when a free from
Hernandez sailed over the wall and it took a spectacular save from
Bolton to keep it out, and moments later a shot from Muscat hit the
post. But the game finished as it started, locked at 0-0.

Sadly but predictably, the game will be remembered for the unsavoury crowd disturbances that are
always a feature of Sydney FC v Melbourne Victory games. It's a problem that exists whether the
games are in Melbourne or Sydney - the levels of hate between the two sets of fans has gone beyond
rivalry to something outrightly dangerous, and the FFA will need to find a way to cut this out of the game
if the A-League is to survive.

With Adelaide and Newcastle both going down, Queensland Roar had a chance to move into second
spot when they hosted Wellington Phoenix, and made no mistake. The Roar were helped when
Ahmed Elrich found himself dismissed early, leaving the visitors with just 10 men for the last hour.
More good fortune was to favour the Queenslanders when Reinaldo was awarded a penalty on 67
minutes, which he slotted home. But there was no doubt about his second goal, or the goal from
Marcinho; both pieces of Brazilian magic matched only by their spectacular gymnastic celebrations.
3-0 to the Roar, a good result when compared to their indifferent home record. The Roar are in
second place, and looking good for their first finals appearance. For the Phoenix, after a promising
start to the season, 5 losses from the last 6 games sees them crashing down the ladder and at
serious risk of falling out of finals contention.
