Vidmar shattered by Adelaide loss
The Reds were seemingly in control of the contest when captain Travis Dodd made it 2-0 in the 53rd minute but a questionable red card given to defender Iain Fyfe completely changed the dynamic of the match as the Glory fought back to score three goals in the final half-hour to record a dramatic win.
The loss has put a further dent in Adelaide’s finals hopes and after the game, Vidmar was left to think what could have been.
“I haven’t seen anything like that in the second half for a long time,” Vidmar said.
“Even at 2-nil we knew they were still going to come at us, but I certainly feel that red card changed the state of the game in that second half.
“We got ourselves into a good position, played a really good 25 minutes in that first half and they came back at us. We knew we had to get a second goal to make it a little bit more difficult for them, understanding that they still had a lot of juice in the tank because they are a very good side.
“Although we got that second goal I thought we could finish off the game, but the red card changed the face of that last 25 minutes.”
