2. Deliberate defiance of a direction that was given by FFA; and

3. Repeated public statements made by or on behalf of Gold Coast United that bring the A-League, FFA and the game of football into disrepute and are prejudicial to the interests of FFA, the A-League and the game of football in Australia.

Adelaide United Youth is set to get an early taste of just what finals football is all about as they prepare to go up against Gold Coast United Youth at Hindmarsh Stadium on Sunday afternoon in a match that could determine who will still be afloat this season.

The final round of the National Youth League is set up for an intriguing finale heading into the business end. With the Central Coast Mariners and Perth Glory already guaranteed the top two spots, there are three teams, Adelaide United, Gold Coast United and Sydney FC, battling it out for the other two finals places.

The Young Reds sit in third, a point ahead of both Gold Coast and Sydney FC heading into the final round.

Adelaide United FC has done everything except take the three points as Gold Coast United snatched a last gasp equaliser in a 1-1 draw at Skilled Park tonight.

Knowing a victory would keep them well in the finals race, a committed, united and disciplined Reds outfit took it up to the third placed Gold Coast and had enough opportunities to put the result beyond doubt, but the home side found a way to escape with a point. ...

Teenage rookie Mathew Leckie scored a crucial injury time goal to level the scores against a 10 man Gold Coast United at Hindmarsh Stadium on Friday night.

Adelaide seemed headed towards another defeat and the bottom rung of the A-League table when Leckie collected the ball outside the box, pushed past Jason Culina before striking the ball just in side the post.

Gold Ccoast had earlier taken the lead through Steve Fitzsimmons. Midfielder Zenon Caravella pushed down the left flank before turning Kristian Sarkies inside out and then crossing the ball to the back post. Fitzsimmons out-jumped Lucas Pantelis to head the ball home.

Gold Coast defender Kristian Rees was sent off the pitch in the 32nd minute for a professional foul as the last man. Rees used his arm to pull back Leckie and was duly given his marching orders when Leckie fell to the ground. Simultaneously Rees stepped on the ball leading to claims he was harshly dealt by the referee. ...

Adelaide United FC is confident of turning its season around and improving its goal scoring strike rate, when they host Gold Coast United at Hindmarsh Stadium tomorrow night (Friday 20 November 2009) in Round 15 of the Hyundai A-League 2009/10 Season (Kick-Off 7.30pm ACDT).

At the half way point of the season, the Reds find themselves in unfamiliar territory in eighth place on the table, and a significant reason for United’s current position is due to an indifferent run of form at home, which has seen them win just three from eight games at Hindmarsh.

But coming off a FIFA Match Day Break, The Reds have a chance to start afresh and Coach Aurelio Vidmar is optimistic that tomorrow night’s crucial home game can be the launching pad to his team’s rise up the table.

“We know we’ve been inconsistent. Are we happy about it – absolutely not. ...

Adelaide United FC has a near full complement to select from heading into Friday night’s crucial home encounter against Gold Coast United in Round 15 of the Hyundai A-League at Hindmarsh Stadium.

Paul Reid and Mathew Leckie both rejoined the main group at the squad’s training session this morning, giving Reds Coach Aurelio Vidmar the chance to field a near full strength side against the Gold Coast.

Central midfielder Reid has only figured once in United’s past eight games due to calf and thigh problems, while the lively and youthful Leckie has recovered from a hamstring strain he suffered against the Central Coast Mariners in Round 13.

“It has been a long time. Obviously I’m looking forward to getting back into it, initially I was just looking forward to getting back into training, but with a good week on the track under my belt, I’ll hopefully put my name up for selection for Friday,” Reid said. ...
