Adelaide United defender, Lachlan Barr, spoke to media at Coopers Stadium on Wednesday afternoon, following his debut goal for the Club and the Reds’ 2-0 win over Perth Glory in Round 10.

Popping up in the 40th minute to pounce on some lacklustre Glory defending, Barr headed United into a deserving lead on Monday night after the home side dominated the opening stages of the game.

With the Reds winless in their previous three matches, Barr’s opener was accented by a Ben Halloran goal just after the 70 minute mark to seal all three points for Carl Veart’s side.

Reflecting and looking ahead:
“It was a huge win for us.

“Given the last three games, we didn’t have (good) results, so for us to get a 2-0 win at home was massively important.

“Keeping a clean sheet was a big, big goal for us and being able to do that was great.

“Then, for myself as well, to get a goal, I was so happy with that… it was a perfect night.

“The result was a good step in the right direction.

“We’ve got a tough game against Central Coast this Saturday, so we’ll look to build on our win.

“We just want to build on that win that we had against Perth and we know that Central Coast is going to be a really tough game.

“We’re going to have to be at our best to be able to get the three points.”

Getting his goal:
“To get my first goal, it’s a massive boost for myself.

“And especially to get it at home at Coopers Stadium was was huge.

“When you have someone like Craig Goodwin on the set pieces, you know he’s going to put it, nine times out of 10, in a good area.

“So it’s just up to us boys attacking the ball and making sure we get something on it and try and finish off these good, good deliveries that he puts in.”

Partnering with Popović:
“(Alexandar) and I get along very well.

“Last year we kept the number of good clean sheets and we’re looking to continue on that form.

“The last three or four games have been close to keeping a clean sheet.

“We have the Brisbane game where we’re up 1-0 and, unfortunately, we gave away a penalty in the last minute and Newcastle we conceded a pretty average deflected goal.

“I think we’ve been close to keeping those clean sheets, so it was nice to have that clean sheet on Monday night.”
