Australian Football: Reds snatch huge win over City

Adelaide United coach Carl Veart will continue to rotate his side after the Reds picked up a huge three points against Melbourne City on Tuesday night.

The Reds are looking to finish in the top six of the A-League this season and jumped up to third on the ladder with the impressive 2-1 win over the reigning premiers.

Tough schedule

Adelaide had to ride their luck and soak up plenty of pressure before Mohamed Toure latched on to a loose backpass to fire home the winner in the 82nd minute.

The win comes after a 1-1 draw with Wellington Phoenix last Saturday and next up is a trip to take on Macarthur this weekend.

With three games away from home in the space of eight days Veart is utilising his squad to the max and will continue to do so against the Bulls in the next game.

"Some of the boys tonight put in a huge shift again," Veart told reporters after the game. "Some of the older boys will be very sore I would say, so I would say we'll be rotating those players.

"That's what we did tonight with Isaias and Juande, we didn't want to burn both of them out. So hopefully they both pull up okay and are good to go on Saturday."

Clough patience

Meanwhile Veart says he also has to play a patient game with new signing Zach Clough but is delighted with what he has seen of him so far.

"Zach has been with us just over a week and a half or so so it's going to take him a little bit of time to settle in," Veart added. "But you saw his quality tonight: his positioning, the way he moves the ball.

"He looks for those killer passes which is something we've been lacking, to have someone that plays those passes. The more minutes that we get into him we can see that we're going to have a very good player there."
