Reds take on Melbourne City behind closed doors


Adelaide United will continue it’s pre-season training with a closed trial match against Melbourne City at Coopers Stadium on Tuesday.

With a couple of key players being rested and others still on the injury list, the locked doors match will give the youngsters another opportunity to prove themselves while giving new signing Craig Goodwin more game time.

The squad also includes the return of Ben Warland, Awer Mabil and Paul Izzo who recently competed in the AFF U19 Youth Championship in Vietnam.

Unfortunately due to the operating costs of opening the stadium to the public, the match against Melbourne City will be closed.
