Del Piero, Emerton rescue Sydney FC

Sydney FC big guns Alessandro Del Piero and Brett Emerton both scored as the Sky Blues came from behind to beat 10-man Perth Glory 2-1 on Sunday.

The marquee players made the most of rare chances as Sydney came from a goal down at halftime to record a second straight win, despite a largely lacklustre performance in front of 22,128 fans at ANZ Stadium.

Travis Dodd had put the Glory ahead with an 18th minute goal, but the visitors went a man down in the second half as Steve Pantelidis was shown a red card for a blatant foul on Emerton.

The Perth defender tossed Emerton to the ground in the box as he looked poised to shoot, with Del Piero stepping up to convert the penalty in the 58th minute to score for the third successive game.

The Italian superstar had been fairly quiet by his standards up to that point and even appeared to miskick his penalty before it trickled in off the left upright.

With Sydney back on level terms, man-of-the match Emerton put Sydney up in the 70th minute after Rhyan Grant stole possession.

Grant dispossessed Liam Miller close to the penalty box and Emerton pounced before finishing with a delightful chip kick over Danny Vukovic.

The end result masked a disjointed display for the Sky Blues, through they fielded a makeshift backline with Adam Griffiths, Pascal Bosschaart and Fabio all out injured.

After losing their first two games, the Sky Blues have now climbed into the top six and sit alongside Perth on six points.

In the first A-League match at Sydney's Olympic Stadium, the Glory were firmly in control in the first half and deservedly took the lead through Dodd.

He capitalised on some woeful defending, catching left back Daniel Petkovski out of position and was allowed to march into the box by Trent McClenahan before beating Sydney `keeper Ivan Necevski with a neat finish.

Sydney's best chance of the half fell to Mitch Mallia, but he sent the headed effort wide from close range.

A ten-man Perth pushed hard for an equaliser late after falling behind and looked unfortunate not to win a penalty after Grant looked to have hand-balled in the box in the 88th minute.
