Adelaide United will put the final steps into their preparation for the upcoming A-League season with last season’s Grand Final re-match.

The Reds will take on fierce rivals Melbourne Victory at Aurora Stadium in Launceston on Sunday and coach Aurelio Vidmar is looking forward to the challenge.

“We want to go there and win, there’s no question about that,” he said.

“If we can do that great, if not we can’t be hard on ourselves, there’s a very long season we have to look forward to and I think the wheel has turned full circle, in the first couple of years they couldn’t beat us and certainly last year they gave us a few good lessons so you just don’t know what will happen this year.

“It will give us a fair indication of where we are and what areas we’ll need to improve in so I’m happy that we’ve actually got another solid game against A-League opposition.”
