Sydney's best performance so far: Arnold

Their winning streak might be over but Sydney FC coach Graham Arnold reckons their 1-1 draw with Brisbane Roar was their best performance of the season.

The runaway A-League leaders dominated Saturday night's clash at Suncorp Stadium but could only muster the one goal, Josh Brillante's 13th-minute rocket.

It ends their run of six consecutive wins to open the season, but Arnold wasn't left too discouraged and believes the Sky Blues are still ticking along nicely.

"I couldn't be happier with the way we're going and the way we played," he said.

"We totally dominated them for probably a good 70, 75 minutes out of the 90.

"Sometimes they go in, sometimes they don't, but overall, outstanding.

"We leave Brisbane disappointed we didn't get the three points but elated with the performance."

Struggling Adelaide United are up next at home for Sydney, who are now six points clear of second-placed Melbourne City, with Brisbane one point back in third.

Roar coach John Aloisi admitted his side were well off the pace in the first half, when repeated turnovers at the back invited Sydney into the game.

"Sydney are a good side, they've shown they're a good side but we gave them a lift by giving them all those chances and giving away the ball in areas," he said.

"They didn't do anything different to what we expected. But we weren't seeing the solution.

"All in all, we have to be happy with a point because we didn't play at our best."
