United fall to Mariners

Adelaide United has lost 4-0 to Central Coast Mariners on Saturday afternoon.

United’s defence held firm until the 31st minute a deflected shot off Alexandar Popović bundled into the Reds’ net.

Adelaide’s victory hopes were dealt a big blow following a straight red card to Isaías immediately after half-time.

Two minutes later the scoreboard read 2-0 when N’Kololo fired in from close range.

Panashe Madanha became the second Adelaide player to score an own goal in the match soon after, with the ball bouncing in off his legs after a save from goalkeeper Joe Gauci.

And it was 4-0 in the 58th minute when Jacob Farrell scored from the corner of the six-yard box.
