LIVE – Wellington Phoenix v Adelaide United

Interim coach Carl Veart could not have wished for a better start to life in the Adelaide United dugout.

A 1-0 win against fellow Hyundai A-League Finals Series contenders Brisbane Roar saw the Reds surge into sixth place and move their post-season hopes closer to reality.

Wellington Phoenix, on the other hands, saw their pre-lockdown momentum squashed by Sydney FC in a 3-1 reverse on restart day, but picked up the pieces with a 2-1 midweek win against Perth Glory.

Ufuk Talay’s third-placed side can still move above Melbourne City into second spot with a win or a draw from their game in hand.

A positive result for the South Australians can tighten their grip on the top six by putting five points between themselves and the chasing pack.

Join us for the first match of this Super Saturday double header at Bankwest Stadium, before Melbourne Victory take on Western United.

Sam Sutton and Callan Elliot make their first starts of the Hyundai A-League season as Talay rings the changes for the Nix.

There are six differences to the side that beat Perth Glory 2-1, with Te Atawhai Hudson-Wihongi and Elliot coming into the defence, Alex Rufer and Brandon Wilson starting in central midfield and Jaushua Sotirio replacing Ulises Davila in attack.

It’s milestone day for centurion Ryan Kitto and 50-game man Ben Halloran, while Lachlan Brook is the only change to Veart’s previous line-up with Nikola Mileusnic sidelined.
