FFA hands Western Sydney suspended point deduction for fan misbehaviour

Football Federation Australia has handed Western Sydney a suspended three-point A-League deduction as punishment for the misbehaviour of fans who lit flares during last weekend's Sydney derby.

The governing body opted against fining the Wanderers, who came down hard this week in shutting their active support area for one game after two flares were ripped early in Sunday's 3-1 loss to Sydney FC.

But the risk of losing three points will hang over the squad until the end of next season after the club was found guilty of bringing the game into disrepute.
