Scott Galloway feels it was “two points dropped” rather than one point gained following Adelaide United’s 1-1 draw with Sydney FC at Coopers Stadium on Friday night.

Galloway opened the scoring with a stunning strike but the Reds were denied the win when Adam Le Fondre struck in the 78th minute.

Galloway believed his side were unfortunate not to come away with the three points after dominating Sydney for large periods of the game.

“For me I feel like it was two points dropped for us,” Galloway admitted following a recovery session at the Adelaide United Training Centre.

“I thought we performed really well, we were solid across the back and it was a game of very few chances but I thought we were the better team.”


Galloway also discussed his debut goal as a Red just before the break and how he noticed goalkeeper, Andrew Redmayne, off his line.

“Just right place at the right time,” he said.

“Goody (Craig Goodwin) laid it back to me and I looked up and saw the ‘keeper off his line and I thought if I whip it to the back post… And I hit it where I wanted it and caught him out.”

The 23-year-old, who signed with the Club during the offseason, said Marco Kurz has helped improve his game in just a short space of time.

He revealed his new teammates have made him feel right at home and is enjoying life in Adelaide and the intense training sessions.

“He’s given me the confidence and he keeps telling me that I’ve quality,” he said.

“Last year was a disappointing year for myself, but coming here I wanted to come to a team that was going to compete for titles and really push for spots.

“And have some real quality players around me and under a quality coach where I’m going to learn constantly.

“The training standard is completely different from where I’ve ever been, the intensity, the amount that we train and that’s what I love.”
