Adelaide United continued their midseason resurgence on Saturday night with an emphatic 3-0 victory over Wellington Phoenix.

The performance was an enjoyable spectacle for fans, families and even…the coach.

“It was a very good day for us.

“We are very happy with the result, with our game, with our recent work.

“Everything was very positive and now I am very happy”.

The victory takes United to 13 points, incredibly just two points outside the top six.

Considering their horrendous start to the campaign the turnaround has been quite extraordinary and unexpected.

Guillermo Amor insisted he always had belief that his team would turn things around.

“I was always very confident in the team we had.

“Even in the difficult moments there was always a lot of confidence in the team and there was always a hunger to do better.

“The team has always worked hard at everything they do and the attitude has always been positive.

“The work and persistence the team has done has been excellent”.

Not surprisingly, Amor admitted the recent wins had reinvigorated belief around the club.

“After a few wins you can acquire more confidence and start to feel better about yourself.

“This certainly allows everything in your game to work better.

“But it must be said, the team has always had belief in what they want to do”.

One man who may not be feeling confident or reinvigorated is striker Bruce Djite.

The once prolific front man failed to light up Coopers Stadium again continuing his disastrous season in which he is yet to score.

Fortunately for Bruce, Guillermo Amor still backs the striker and will continue to for the remainder of the season.

“Bruce’s form is not a problem, I have confidence with this player in this moment.

“Right now is not a time to be worrying about this”.

Adelaide United now travel to Western Sydney and Perth in consecutive away games that will shape the rest of their Hyundai A-League season.
