Sydney FC cluthces draw with Heart

A SECOND-HALF brace from Shannon Cole helped Sydney FC storm back from a 2-0 halftime deficit to clinch a draw with Melbourne Heart at AAMI Park.

The result means the Heart qualify for their first Hyundai A-League finals tilt while the Sky Blues have to win next week against Newcastle Jets to make the top six.

It was a gutsy fight back from Vitaslav Lavicka's men after Mate Dugandzic and Eli Babalj capped a dominant opening half for the home side by each finding the back of the net in hot six-minute period just before the break.

But momentum switched in the second half and substitute Cole made the Heart pay for defensive lapses with strikes on 66 and 77 minutes as Sydney once again rescued a result.

After a cautious first half hour the home side brought the game to life.
