Aussie keeper Petkovic emerges as Sivasspor hero

But it wasn't all bad news for his club, Sivasspor, as they managed to hold onto 3rd place in the Turkcell Super Liga.

The match began well for Petkovic's side, as Cameroon international Rigobert Song put one in the back of his own net, giving the home side a 1-0 lead.

The visiting Turkish champs then slipped into top gear and went ahead before the club from Sivas hit back but it wasn't enough and the Australian was left with an unenviable job.

The final score was 5-3, but the losing team held onto their UEFA Cup hopes on goal difference to rival Besiktas.

Petkovic's displays have been of high quality in the 2007/08 season, and he sits fifth on the goalkeeper's performance table in the top Turkish league.
