Adelaide United Head Coach, Adrian Stenta, has praised his side’s start to the Liberty A-League 2022/23 season, following its win over Perth Glory in Round 2.

A goal from Dylan Holmes in the first half of the clash saw the Reds take the win out and become the first United side to start a season with back-to-back wins.

Stenta gave his thoughts on the match itself, as well as highlight more history is on the cards for the squad.

The performance:
“I think our first half was excellent today and I really didn’t have much to say to the girls at half time.

“That’s how good I thought we played in the first 45.

“We were probably a two goal better team in the first half and I was a little bit disappointed we didn’t grab a second (goal) knowing what was going to come in the second half.

“In the second half, if we took one or two chances that we created, it might have been a different end to the game, but we’re proud that they were able to hold on and keep a second clean sheet for the season.

“Glory are a really good side who are well coached with a lot of good players who created enough chances to score goals.

“But our defensive action, as it was against Sydney last week, and our goalkeeper in particular, Annie Grove, was brilliant.”

More history into the books:
“This side just continues making history.

“I think this is correct, but I don’t think an Adelaide United women’s side has ever won their first two games to start a season.

“That’s not good enough as a club and I’m glad we’ve been able to do that today.

“Now I wouldn’t mind some silverware – that would be nice – and I think this group is capable of it, but I’m not setting any any limits on this team.

“I just look forward to trying to create even more history and breaking more records with this team because they work so hard and they’re a brilliant team to coach.”
