Australian Football: Corica unhappy with Nix draw

Sydney FC boss Steve Corica was unhappy with Saturday's 1-1 draw with Wellington Phoenix and felt his side had enough chances to take all three points.

Sydney are out to win the A-League grand final this season but Corica feels they dropped crucial points in the clash at Leichhardt Oval.

Missed chances

David Ball had given the in-form Phoenix the lead in the first half before Bobo grabbed an equaliser after the break to earn a share of the points.

Bobo almost grabbed a winner in stoppage time with a fine save from Nix goalkeeper Oli Sail denying him, while the Sky Blues missed other chances to take the win.

Sydney had 10 shots on target compared to Wellington's three, but unfortunately for Corica they could only put one of them in the back of the net.

Corica disappointed

"We're disappointed we didn't get the three points," Corica told reporters after the game. "I think we deserved them. We created obviously a lot of chances.

"The keeper made about seven saves so I'm pretty sure he would've got man of the match.

"Obviously creating chances is very positive as well and the way we went about it was fantastic but we have to take a couple more chances, we have to have a little bit more composure in front of goals."

Sydney are now unbeaten in five matches and sit fourth on the ladder for now, just four points behind leaders Melbourne City.

Next up for Corica's men is a clash against Western United in Melbourne on Wednesday night.
