Adelaide United has continued their great recent by overcoming the Queensland Roar at Suncorp Stadium on Friday night.
Robert Cornthwaiteâ€™s controversial 60th minute goal separated the two sides, with the home team appealing to the referee for offside but the calls were to no avail, referee Mark Shield allowing the goal.
Reds coach Aurelio Vidmar was pleased with the result, saying, â€śItâ€™s never easy coming here and they were probably a little bit below par as well, although they are always a very dangerous side.
â€śThey really came at us in that last 20 minutes but Iâ€™m rapt with the way the team defended as a group.â€ť
Roar skipper Craig Moore was rational in his thoughts on the game and was remaining positive.
â€śYou canâ€™t go in there and shout at the boys because hey give you everything,â€ť he said.
â€śThey work their backsides off and keep plugging away, keep trying.
â€śItâ€™s unfortunate but Iâ€™m sure weâ€™ll fair all right in the season. Thereâ€™s still plenty of football to be played.â€ť
The Roar will be out to redeem themselves at Wellington whilst Adelaide hosts Perth Glory, both games on Sunday.
