Sydney FC break A-League points record

A-League premiers Sydney FC have amassed the greatest points tally in the competition's history after a final-round 2-0 win over Newcastle on Saturday.
But it has come at a cost to the Sky Blues, after goal scorer and standout Milos Ninkovic limped off the Sydney Football Stadium pitch after a sliding tackle by Ben Kantarovski.
Ninkovic's 56th-minute goal and skipper Alex Brosque's 87th-minute effort took Sydney to 66 points from 27 games, one point more than the mark of 65 set by Ange Postecoglou's brilliant 2010-11 Brisbane side, over a 30-game season.
"It's still hard to fathom," coach Graham Arnold said.
"Sixty-six points out of 81 — it's crazy.
