Talay was asked in the post-match press conference what he would rate the performance of his side after his opposite number Gertjan Verbeek gave his Reds a three out of 10.

’’I would give the boys a 10 out of 10,” he said.

“I’m very proud of them, the performance they put out tonight was exceptional.

’’They stuck to the game plan and they nullified Adelaide from hurting us because they are a very good side in transition as well.

“I think we thoroughly deserved the win, we created a lot of opportunities, especially in the first half.”

Wellington’s win brought Adelaide’s four-game win streak to an end and it was the first time in five years the Nix had won in the city of churches.

Reds’ coach Verbeek said he could sense something was not quite right on Friday at training.

’’I was very disappointed with Friday’s training and again on Saturday, I was not satisfied,” he said.

’’We did a lot of set pieces and all every time our defenders were under pressure.

“They were not aggressive and we saw that tonight.

’’If you start with this kind of mindset, you can’t play the game like last week because the difference is too big.”

The defeat leaves Verbeek with work to do ahead of their next home game against Newcastle Jets, who will bring plenty of confidence to Coopers Stadium after beating Western Sydney Wanderers 2-0.

As for the Nix, they face the Wanderers at home where they will look to make it three wins in a row.
