Another round of A-League matches and another round of interesting results, including Gold Coast United copping their first loss. Round 4 kicked off on Friday evening with a double-header - the first match being Adelaide United versus North Queensland Fury at Hindmarsh Stadium.
The final result was a 3-3 draw in what will surely prove to be one of the best contests of the season.
Fury marquee player netted his first goal from field play, sending home a cracking right-foot volley which will definitely be a contender for goal of the year, before five more goals were scored including an injury time penalty to deny the Fury their maiden A-League win.
