Sydney are still waiting for their first win in five years at Adelaide's ground, but they are the happier of the sides as they managed to deny their opponents from taking all three points.

It was an attacking display from both sides, but Adelaide managed to take the lead on the stroke of half time through Cirio, who scored his second with a strike in the box.
Adelaide were preparing to enter the interval with a one-goal cushion, but in the third minute of stoppage time, Milos Ninkovic stormed into the area before picking out Holosko with a pass.
The forward managed to drift past his marker before lifting the ball over defender Jordan Elsey and into the bottom left corner of the net.
In the second half, both sides had opportunities to get the winner and one in particular was squandered by Adelaide. Marcelo Carrusca's cross into the box fell to the feet of Mauk, but he missed a sitter from six yards out as he blazed the ball over the crossbar.
Both goalkeepers were busy, but after a frantic first half, neither side could find the winning goal and they settled for a share of the spoils.
