City defeat the Bulls

Macarthur FC face their second loss in a row and miss the chance to move up to third after a disappointing mid-week result against City.

The early signs seemed like an tight game, but after 15 minutes the Bulls went ahead.

Craig Noone’s delivery into the area spilled off a charging Adrian Mariappa and, with goalkeeper Matt Sutton caught in no man’s land, fell into the path of Apostolos Giannou for an easy finish.

Although Bulls took the lead, City were quick to fight back and take the lead leading into the second half. Substitute Liam Rose should have dragged one back late but put his open chance wide. With no further chances for the Bulls, it was City who took all 3 points from the match.
