Victory beat Sydney

5:40 am on 28 December 2008

Substitutes Nick Ward and Ney Fabiano both scored late goals as Melbourne Victory continued Sydney FC's horror run with a dramatic comeback 3-2 A-League win at Telstra Dome.

It was the third straight defeat for Sydney, who are now struggling to stay in touch with the top four and under huge pressure after entering the season as title favourites.

For the Victory it solidified their standing inside the four, breaking a three-game losing run.

The Wellington Phoenix play in Queensland today.
