Western Sydney Wanderers were joined in toasting derby success by Melbourne City, who issued an ominous warning in Conference A.

Meanwhile, in Conference B, four of five teams are locked on six points as the fight for positions intensifies.

Classy City cruise past Victory

Moudi Najjar continued his sparkling form by striking twice to help Melbourne City to a comprehensive 4-1 win over Melbourne Victory at CB Smith Reserve.

Najjar - a scorer against Perth Glory last time out - and Connor Metcalfe both notched braces either side of half-time, while Yazid Said added respectability to the scoreline for Victory.

City are now five points clear of their bottom-placed rivals in Conference A.

Wanderers paint Sydney red and black

Western Sydney Wanderers drew level on six points with Sydney FC thanks to Marley Peterson's first-half penalty in a 1-0 win at Lambert Park on Saturday.

Daniel De Silva, regaining fitness following a hamstring injury, threatened to drag the Sky Blues level, but they were left with their first defeat in three fixtures.

Entertaining Adelaide gather pace against Glory

Adelaide United boosted their goal haul to seven in three games with a 2-1 win over Perth Glory at Marden Sports Complex.

Cooper Nunn's low drive from a free-kick in the 22nd minute and Zayd Farah's own goal after half-time ensured the Reds - now the only Y-League's only unbeaten team - maintained top spot despite Gabriel Popovic's late consolation.

Jets overcome Canberra in Haliti's maiden hit-out
