Sydney beats Central Coast 5-4 to take top-four place in A-League

Sydney came from behind to beat Central Coast 5-4 on Saturday and grab a place in the top four of Australian soccer's A-League.
Sydney trailed 2-0 after 15 minutes, battled back to lead at 4-3 then, after falling back into a tie, won the match with the decisive goal coming four minutes from fulltime as Ufuk Talay converted a penalty.
Sydney coach John Kosmina was thrilled with his team's effort.
"I never believed that we couldn't (come back)," Kosmina said.
"It was never in doubt that we could come back from it because we've got character in this team and it was just a matter of self-belief.
"The good thing is that we came back two or three times from the dead."
