Football Federation Australia has put Western Sydney on notice after their hopes for a flare-free A-League season fell at the first hurdle.

After Wanderers fans lit and threw a small number of flares in their 4-0 Sydney derby loss, FFA on Monday issued the club with a show cause notice that will extend - but not trigger - the threat of a three-point deduction until the end of the season.

According to the governing body, the Wanderers have accepted the result and will re-double their efforts to maintain crowd decorum for the season ahead.
