Adelaide United coach Marco Kurz has admitted his squad needs more quality in the attacking third and is looking for new signings after Sundays five-goal thumping at the hands of Melbourne City.

A late collapse by the Reds saw City stroll to a dominant 5-0 victory and although the Adelaide coach wasn’t overly concerned by the manner of defeat he did flag the need for reinforcements after the match.

“We lacked the quality today to finish our chances and in our pressing game,” said Kurz.

“It was one of our worst games of the season.

“We will look to bring quality to the club, not just a big name and I hope we find one or two good players for the rest of the season.”

Kurz felt the disparity on the score sheet against City did not truly reflect the game with Adelaide’s Apostolos Stametopoulos and George Blackwood spurning the best chances of the match.

“The biggest chances of this game were on our side but they scored beautiful goals that we could do nothing about.”

With just one win in their past four games Kurz feels it is not time to panic just yet but the Reds will need to find their form as the race for finals football heats up.

“It’s important to analyse this game and learn from it.

“My players do not need a heavy hand, we just need to stay calm and stand up next week, it’s just one bad game.”

The Reds will now look to return to winning ways as they travel across the ditch to face the in-form Wellington Phoenix on Saturday evening.
