The Reds dominated proceedings for the majority of the night to end their eight game winless streak, combining beautiful football with what has been missing this season; a goal.

Despite it being a bottom of the table encounter the game started in explosive fashion with Adelaide taking an early lead.

A delightful long ball found Pablo Sanchez who expertly chipped the ball over the head of Glory keeper Ante Covic.

There was a positive vibe about Adelaide’s play with the men in red dominating early possession and chances.

Cirio looked a constant threat whenever he gathered the ball which caused havoc for the Perth defenders.

A few minutes after his opening goal Pablo had the opportunity to make it two but failed to direct his header on target.

As the first half ticked on, Perth Glory slowly began to entrench themselves into the game.

They settled after the early Adelaide onslaught and were gaining more possession in dangerous areas.

Adelaide remained threatening themselves but certainly displayed caution to Perth’s improvement.

With both teams now firmly in the encounter, the Coopers Stadium crowd witnessed an entertaining finish to the half with plenty of end to end attacking football.

Castro and Sidnei had golden opportunities for Perth but failed to convert their relatively simple chances.

Meanwhile Carrusca fluffed his shot for Adelaide before Cirio’s effort was expertly saved by Covic on the stroke of half time.

If Adelaide’s start to the first half was good, their start to the second was electrifying.

United outplayed Perth in all aspects and produced many splendid opportunities.

Djite and Cirio went close before Sanchez’s cross-cum-shot hit the crossbar.

As time ticked on and Adelaide failed to convert their second, a few obvious nerves crept around the stadium and noticeably on the pitch.

Another game without a win was just too unbearable for some.

In the 76th minute Perth created their first genuine chance of the half with Warren’s vicious shot forcing Galekovic into a fine save.

United didn’t retreat players in mass but certainly put a few extras behind the ball to fend off any potential dangers from Perth.

As the game neared its conclusion Glory began to have more possession as they pushed for the equalizer.

Ultimately, the Reds defended expertly and refused to allow the Glory through, vitally holding on for their first win of the 2015/16 Hyundai A-League campaign. They remarkably now jump Perth and Central Coast Mariners into eighth position.
