Note 1: Sydney FC's second goal came after a incorrect offside decision that allowed the goal to stand. Bernie Ibini clearly held and impeded the vision of Ante Covic but neither the assistant referee or referee saw a foul. Romeo Castelen got the last touch that deflected the ball past Covic.
Note 2: Vitor Saba was given a straight red for a lunging but otherwise clean tackle that got the ball.
Note 3: Vedran Janjetovic spilled the ball into his own net after a shanked clearance fired it high into the air.
Note 4: This match received the highest ratings for a regular season A-League fixture on Foxtel, with 175,000 viewers.
Note 5: The crowd of 41,213 was a record Sydney FC crowd for a regular season fixture and their 2nd highest ever after the 2005/2006 Grand Final. It is the 13th highest crowd of all A-League matches and 4th highest excluding Finals series matches.
Note 6: Milestones reached in this match include Ante Covic (70 all competition appearances), Mark Bridge (55 A-League appearances & 20 all competition goals), Kwabena Appiah (25 A-League appearances).
