From strength to strength for Adelaide United

-

The magnificent resurgence of Adelaide United continued on Saturday afternoon with a dominant 3-1 victory over the Central Coast Mariners.

United outclassed the visitors for much of the afternoon through a combination of attacking football and a resilient defence.

Amor was jubilant as he strolled confidently to his post match chair and begun by talking about his side’s terrific performance.

“It’s good for us; we deserved this as we had control of the game.

“We had a lot of chances in the match and a lot of chances to win the game.

“We had so much control and this makes me very happy”.

Despite Adelaide’s dominance, Central Coast did unexpectedly draw level mid-way through the second half.

This certainly frustrated Amor but he was pleased with the quick response of his players.

“When they drew level there were a few nervous moments as the game momentarily changed.

“Had we closed the game earlier it would have been a lot calmer for everyone at the end.

“Either way it was a good response and finish to the match”.

Although United have very few problems at present however Amor did address the current injury concerns of Galekovic and Cirio, two important players who missed the recent victory.

“Eugene had some sort of a problem but I think he just needs some rest.

“I’m not too sure when he will be ready but hopefully in the next week.

“Sergio Cirio has a problem and he didn’t train the other day”.

As Amor left his chair his infectious smile and laughter was obvious for all to see; here was a man enjoying the moment.

This was the same man who just weeks ago was a target within Adelaide supporter groups, determined to see him go before he derailed their club’s season entirely.

Remarkably Adelaide currently sit in sixth, comfortably above their closest competitor with a wonderful run of victories to their name.

Although the club certainly isn’t getting ahead of themselves, there is a positive feeling that this resurgence can develop in to something a whole lot bigger.
