SYDNEY (AP) - Albanian striker Besart Berisha scored in the 12th minute and Fahid Ben Khalfallah on fulltime to give the Melbourne Victory a 2-0 win over the Central Coast Mariners in the A-League on Sunday.

The win moved the Victory three points ahead of Sydney FC and in fifth place, six points behind first-place Adelaide.

Melbourne City dented Sydney’s top-six playoff chances when Uruguayan striker Bruno Fornaroli scored all the goals in a 3-0 win. Fornaroli took his season tally to a league-record 20 goals.

Sydney is winless in its past seven matches and leads seventh-place Perth by just two points and Newcastle by four. There are five regular-season rounds remaining.
