Adelaide United expect a desperate
and fired-up Brisbane outfit in
tonight's clash at Hindmarsh,
with the Roar falling to second last on
the A-League ladder following a string
of average results.
Adelaide too is hungry for a win,
after its draw with the Central Coast
Mariners in Canberra last week.
The Roar found themselves third on
the A-League table in round six before
freefalling down the ladder and Reds
captain Travis Dodd is wary of the
"They have come off four losses and
a draw so they're going to be desperate
coming to Hindmarsh, and we really
need to start picking up points," Dodd
"I think it's just a matter of the
group. We all have to drive each other
throughout training this week and
that's something I'll be focusing on
with Lucas and the other senior boys,
to make sure that everyone's heads are
right throughout the week and for the
Approaching the half-way mark of
the season the Reds too are anxious;
they sit just three points ahead of the
Roar, with only three wins from seven
"The back end of the season is a
difficult one for us, so especially at
home we need to get three points,"
Their task will be made harder
with the news that talented youngster
Mathew Leckie has sustained a
hamstring strain, ruling him out of
tonight's match as well as the upcom-
ing AFC U-19 Championship 2010
qualifiers in Indonesia.
United received better news this
week when goalkeepers Eugene
Galekovic and Mark Birighitti decided
to re-sign with the club.
Galekovic signed a new four-year
deal while Birighitti re-signed for a
further two seasons.
It's a massive get for the Reds,
with Birighitti one of the hottest
goalkeeping prospects in the country
and Galekovic the reigning A-League
Goalkeeper of the Year. "Obviously a
four-year deal gives me a bit of security
and lets Adelaide United know where
they stand as well, so I'm happy to sign
a long term deal and I think Adelaide
United are, too," Galekovic said.
"Adelaide was my first preference.
Obviously there were a lot of plus
sides to go back to Melbourne but in
the end, Adelaide has treated me well
and I'd like to pretty much finish my
career up in Adelaide if I don't go
The 28-year-old's statements left
the door to a possible move overseas
slightly ajar but, for now it seems, he's
happy keeping in red.
"It is not something I'm pushing to
do but if offers do come from overseas,
any player would have to look at it. But
in saying that, if I'm going to play in
Australia, I want to finish my career
off in Adelaide, because it has been a
great club, and a great club to me, so I'd
just like to repay that faith to them,"
"When you're playing regular
football you start enjoying your
football more, and I'm pretty much at
my peak as a goalkeeper, so I'm happy
to give my best to Adelaide United
while I'm at my peak."
