The shot-stopper has reinvented himself at Sydney FC and saved Riley McGree's late penalty to inspire the Sky Blues to a 2-0 win over Melbourne City in Kogorah.

Sydney delivered a commanding display, with the Brandon O'Neill and Josh Brillante boiler-room chugging full steam ahead; they're now both firmly within the league's most prolific passers.

At the front of the pitch, young-gun Luke Ivanovic (minutes before he was sidelined with muscle tightness) and a clinical late sealer from Adam le Fondre earned the points. 

"Our results have been pretty good, I think our performance was a little below par but we’re happy with the result," Redmayne said.

"I’m just sick of the wiggles jokes to be honest, I just tried something different and you see what happens.

"There was something different with the approach of (McGree) and I just do what I can."

Sydney remain one point behind Melbourne Victory in third, but City have fallen from clear skies in fourth place to heads-above-water territory: now only one point above Wellington Phoenix in fifth. 

"I think for the most part we were alright, we dominated the play but we put a few crosses in the box that weren’t converted," Rostyn Griffiths maintained, towing the party line.

"(Jamie) Maclaren will be a huge boost for the squad, we’ve played without a number nine, created chances and haven’t been able to put them away.

"The young lads have played a lot more games than people expected and I think they’ve done very well."
