Australian Football: Corica rues lack of cutting edge
Sydney FC coach Steve Corica was left to rue his side's cutting edge in the final third as they lost against Macarthur on Saturday, but says they will improve.
The Sky Blues are priced at 7/1 to win the 2021/22 A-League grand final but have got the campaign off to a slow start.
Lack of goals
Corica's men have just one point from the opening two games following Saturday's 1-0 defeat against Macarthur.
The result comes on the back of a 0-0 draw with Western Sydney Wanderers and the fact they have yet to score is also a big surprise.

Sydney dominated possession for large periods of the game but they could not find a way through and the Bulls snatched all three points when Lachie Rose scored in the 17th minute.
Adam Le Fondra and Patrick Wood both forced good saves from Bulls goalkeeper Filip Kurto as they pushed for an equaliser but on the whole they were lacking in attack.
Corica is not reaching for the panic button though and knows his team will start getting the results to climb the ladder when his attack starts to click.
"It's disappointing to lose but also not to score goals," Corica told reporters after the game. "We've had a big week and we were a little bit flat in the first half and gave away a sloppy goal.
"Other than that they didn't really trouble us. We need to get that final third right and things will go from there."
