Adelaide United sits in fifth place on the A-League ladder after 24 rounds.

Marcelo Carrusca pulled the strings in their 3-1 triumph against Sydney FC on Friday night, creating goals for Fabio Ferreira and Sergio Cirio in an ill-tempered affair at Coopers Stadium.

Sydney’s Matt Thompson scored before Adelaide’s Bruce Djite sealed the win some three minutes from fulltime.
