Today the D’s have the short trip to Adelaide high to take on Uni SA.
It’s a fantastic day not a cloud in the sky and we can expect all the skills to be on display!
With the champions league final on tonight there may be some inspiration for some cracking goals and play. Pitch is dry and huge! Extremely wide so there will be some tried boys at the end of this one. The tale of the tape is the Whites coming off a impressive 5-0 victory and Uni SA struggling so far this season.
The lads in good spirits as they look to jump up the table with a solid win today!
And we’re off!
Whites look good early and just finding their passing game but well on top! George finds Arron he cuts down the right and a beautiful through ball and Johnny with a clinical finish. 1 nil whites!!!
Defense of the whites owning the ball and starting to open them up with some great passing!
Uni SA under pressure and as they pass the ball back it’s a bit short and Johnny slips in and gets his foot to it, chips the keeper for number 2!!!!
Whites continue to dominate and make a couple of subs to give the other guys a go! Sammy impassable in fact the whole defense has been rock solid.
Whites keep the pressure up and a couple of havoc balls have to keeper out of position but the shots are blocked.
Close to half time and it’s a matter of when’s the next goal is coming!!!
In the middle and Matty out battles their captain and Abdul places a perfect ball and Hamood (without his glasses he just broke) slots it in with a quality finish!
The pressure has been the key as Uni SA cannot cope plus their skills are below par!
3 nil whites
Half time and it’s a dominating performance so far from the whites!
Second half needs to see more of the same and a minimum 5 goals again this week will be the goal.
Second half underway and Uni SA have their best period of the match with some solid ball control. The whites need to show some patience and build the attacks.
Whites settle into their work and are looking better now with more time on the ball. Their passing is back up to standard but not getting the final touches to open them up.
On the counter they go deep in their box and they get one back
Whites work it out of defense and Ismail wins a ball on the wing, takes it all the way and snaps it back to Johnny and he again adds the quality finish needed from a striker for 4-1
Whites. That’s his hatrick!!!
Andre tireless in the middle field has been very good.
Jan takes a free kick and it’s a hand ball off a rebound on the edge of the box? But it’s blocked. The boys have lifted their effort after the Uni SA’s goals. There’s been 4 shots just missing in the second half that could have been scored.
It’s been a solid performance but I am sure we could have have a couple more.
Full time and 4 points in the bank! Call outs to Mo, Kirstin and Sammy in defense however All played well.
