5-star Western United dazzle in Adelaide to reignite finals charge


In a hugely entertaining encounter, Western United defeated Adelaide United 5-1 at Coopers Stadium on Saturday.

The win lifting the Green and Black back into the six after goals to Berisha (2), Diamanti, Burgess, his fourth in two weeks, and Pain.

It’s now 11 goals in two games from Mark Rudan’s men. 

A shock, however, inside the first 10 minutes for the Green and Black with keeper Filip Kurto falling heavy after coming out to head a ball clear.

Medical staff taking off the Polish shot-stopper after a long check, with back-up Ryan Scott coming on for his A-League debut.

But the change made little difference as Scott performed superbly, United sparkled, making the Reds pay in a ruthless manner, on a day to remember for the Green and Black and their fans at Coopers.
