SYDNEY (AP) -Striker Daniel McBreen's two goals, the second in the sixth minute of stoppage time, gave the first-place Central Coast Mariners a 2-0 win over a 10-man Western Sydney Wanderers side in the A-League on Sunday.

The win moved the Mariners four points clear of second-place Adelaide United after 15 rounds.

The Wanderers played a man down at their Parramatta Stadium in western Sydney from the 54th minute after midfielder Jason Trifiro was sent off for a second yellow card.

Approaching full time, the match was delayed for several minutes when fans threw empty bottles and a flare near the Central Coast goal when referee Chris Beath failed to award a penalty after Western Sydney striker Mark Bridge was brought down in the box.
