    title fight after the A-Leagues big blues scored knockout round six wins.Victory
    earned a 3-0 win over Western Sydney on Saturday night before Sydney went one
    better by beating Perth 4-1 on Sunday afternoon for their sixth-straight win of
    the campaign.Both sides benefited from defensive howlers but their attacking
    strength couldnt be denied.Milos Ninkovic again starred for FC, picking up his
    third man-of-the-match award with a two-goal effort as Alex Brosque and Bobo
    completed the scoring.The Serbian said it might have been his best performance
    in a sky blue shirt, but better was still to come.The last six games weve played
    good but I think we can play much better with the ball. We just need to control
    more ball, he told Fox Sports.This season is going to be much better than last
    year.Sydney are now six points clear at the top of second-placed Melbourne City,
    with Brisbane third and Victory moving up to fourth.Victory midfielder Oliver
    Bozanic, who netted the opening goal of the game, said their result was
    significant.Were taking it game by game. But we want to be up there. And the
    only way you can do that is by winning, he told AAP.Were pushing ourselves.Its
    still very early in the season but tonight was very important.In his second
    season as a Victory marquee, Bozanic continues to polarise opinion, with many
    believing the 2014 World Cup Socceroo isnt putting in consistent performances
    worthy of his boosted wage.But the 27-year-old played a strong hand on Saturday
    night, and on the basis of his goal celebration, you cant accuse him of not
    caring.Bozanic repeatedly thumped the Victory badge on his shirt, showing his
    passion for the cause.The key to Victorys improvement could be strength in
    attacking depth.Marco Rojas was unavailable but Mitch Austin and Fahid Ben
    Khalfallah - who was unplayable at times - filled in with aplomb.Second-half
    substitutes Jai Ingham and Max Beister also both found the net.It means Victory
    have plenty of routes to goal, but talented players will be missing out.Ben
    Khalfallah showed his endearing honesty when asked about his lack of game time
    after the match.To be honest Im not very happy because I want to play. Everyone
    wants to play and especially me, he told Fox Sports.(Coach Kevin Muscat) is the
    boss. He makes his calls and I respect that.Cross-town rivals Melbourne City
    returned to winning ways on Thursday night with a 2-1 win over Newcastle Jets
    that lifts them to second on the table behind Sydney FC.Captain fantastic Bruno
    Fornaroli netted twice to become the fastest man to 30 A-League goals while
    Andrew Nabbout grabbed a first-half consolation for the Jets.Brisbane were the
    dominant side in Adelaide on Friday night but had to settle for a 1-1 draw with
    Adelaide after goalkeeper Eugene Galekovics heroics.The veteran gloveman made
    six saves, while opposite number Michael Theo let in the Reds only shot on
    target for the match as Sergi Guardiola found a late equaliser.Brett Holman
    opened the scoring on the hour-mark with his first Australian club goal in more
    than 14 years.And in Central Coasts new home-away-from-home of Canberra on
    Saturday, Ernie Merrick became the first A-League manager to notch 100 wins with
    a 2-0 success.In-form Wellington Phoenix frontman Roy Krishna scored one and
    assisted Hamish Watson for the other in a wind-affected day in the capital.

    . "Hes going to have hip surgery on Jan. 7, and
    hell be expected to rehabilitate for four to six months beyond that," Canucks
    general manager Mike Gillis said Friday in an interview. Ohio and Troy meet on
    Friday night in the Dollar General Bowl at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Ala.
    It could just as easily be named the Oh-so-close Bowl.Both the Bobcats (8-5) and
    the Trojans (9-3) nearly missed a couple of major upsets this season. Ohio was
    driving for the potential game-winning touchdown before getting intercepted and
    losing to undefeated Western Michigan 29-23 in the MAC title game at Ford
    Field.Troy, meanwhile, nearly upset Clemson back on Sept. 10 in Death Valley,
    losing 30-24.Still, both programs have a lot to build on heading into the 7 p.m.
    ET contest that will be televised by ESPN.The Trojans became the first Sun Belt
    Conference team to be ranked in the Associated Press Top 25 after an 8-1 start
    that featured the Clemson loss as its only blemish. Troy dropped out of the poll
    after a stunning 35-3 home loss to Arkansas State that featured five Trojan
    turnovers. They lost two of its final three games, but are headed to their first
    bowl game since 2010, quite a turnaround for a team that finished just 4-8 a
    year earlier.Its a huge accomplishment for this football team, second-year Troy
    head coach Neal Brown said. You look at a team that was picked to finish in the
    middle of the Sun Belt, we only had two guys that were selected as preseason
    All-Sun Belt. So to turn that into a year that we get nationally ranked for the
    first time in school and Sun Belt history, play on national television three
    times and to finish 9-3, which ties the record for most wins in a season in Troy
    Division I history, is a great accomplishment for our staff and players.Led by
    junnior running back Jordan Chunn (1,232 yards rushing and a conference-best 13
    touchdowns), Troy led the Sun Belt in scoring, passing and total offense with 49
    touchdowns and 5,263 total yards.dddddddddddd.The Trojans will be going up
    against an Ohio defense led by defensive end Tarell Basham, the MAC Defensive
    Player of the Year, that registered 43 sacks and ranks sixth nationally in rush
    defense allowing an average of 105.8 yards per game and 26th in scoring defense
    (22.2).Basham led the MAC with 11.5 sacks and has 29.5 in his career.Theyve got
    a great recipe for success, Brown said. They know how to run the football; they
    stop the run as good as anybody in the country this year. They can put pressure
    on the quarterback. We know were going to have our hands full, and were excited
    about that challenge.This is the eighth straight year that Ohio has been bowl
    eligible under head coach Frank Solich. The Bobcats are still searching for
    their first MAC championship since 1968 but made things real interesting two
    weeks ago against Cotton Bowl-bound Western Michigan, which needed an
    interception by linebacker Robert Spillane on its own 30 with 51 seconds left to
    seal the win against the East Division champion Bobcats in the MAC title game in
    Detroit.We know we have a challenging opponent, obviously, in Troy, Solich said.
    Great football program; had a tremendous season. Coach Brown is doing an
    outstanding job along with his staff. So it should be a great game. ' ' '
