Two goals in three second-half minutes saw A-League leaders Sydney FC return to winning ways with a 2-0 victory over lowly defending champions Adelaide United.

A goalless draw at home to Western Sydney Wanderers last time out halted a run of four consecutive victories that have seen Graham Arnold’s men establish a healthy lead at the summit.

But strikes from Alex Brosque and Milos Ninkovic either side of the hour moved them eight points clear of second-placed Melbourne Victory, who have a game in hand.

Brosque’s left-footed volley opened the scoring after he got on the end of a Rhyan Grant cross – his ninth goal of the season.

Ninkovic then compounded the misery for Adelaide when he fired home from the centre of the box following a Michael Zullo throw-in that was not dealt with.

For Sydney it was a fourth clean sheet in five matches, while Adelaide are without an away win all season.
