17 year old Chris Payne proved the difference between two sides weakened by injury and suspension. Tiattto and Kruse both missed the trip.
If Payne continues in this vain, scoring one and forcing saves with several other shots - including an over-head kick - Sydney will not need John Aloisi.
That said, reports indicate that the Roar dominated the game. New striker Sergio van Dijk showing class with a great goal.
