Japanese star Shinji Ono scored a stunning individual goal and assisted another as Western Sydney Wanderers won their Australian A-League derby 2-0 over Sydney FC on Saturday.

The influential Ono laid on a teasing free kick for Italian Iacopo La Rocca to head home the opening goal in the 11th minute, and then uncorked a brilliant individual goal for the second.

Ono flicked the ball over the defence and then rifled home into the far corner for his first goal and Wanderers' first A-League victory of the season before 40,000 fans. While Ono was spearheading Western Sydney, Sydney FC were without their Italian superstar Alessandro Del Piero, who was out with an injured calf.

In Saturday's other game, league champions Central Coast Mariners downed Adelaide United 1-0 with the winning goal coming in just the second minute from Nick Fitzgerald.
