Reds wait on Galekovic decision

Goalkeeper Eugene Galekovic will have until kick-off to prove his fitness for Adelaide United’s Asian Champions League (ACL) semi-final second leg in Tashkent on Wednesday.

The Reds’ goalkeeper missed Adelaide’s weekend A-League game with a groin strain, but arrived with his teammates in Tashkent for the match against Bunyodkor.

Galekovic did not train at a session during the squad’s Singapore stopover, however it is hoped that intensive treatment from United’s medical staff will see the goalkeeper ready to start the match.

Adelaide will hold a familiarisation and training session at the MHSK Stadium in Tashkent tomorrow ahead of Wednesday night’s match.

United go into the game with a 3-0 home leg lead and need a win on aggregate to progress to the ACL final against either Gamba Osaka and Urawa Red Diamonds.

Controversial goal gives Reds victory over Roar

  Queensland Roar VS Adelaide United

A controversial goal from defender Robert Cornthwaite has given Adelaide United all three points against Queensland Roar at Suncorp Stadium last night.

Neither goalkeeper was seriously troubled during the opening 45 minutes, with so few chances being created that a kookaburra perched on the crossbar of Adelaide’s goal for much of the half.

On the hour mark, poor defending by Queensland allowed Cornthwaite to nod home the winner, with Andrew Packer failing to clear a Cristiano header from a Paul Reid cross, the Reds defender held off a Josh McCloughan challenge to head over Roar goalkeeper Liam Reddy.

But replays clearly showed Cristiano was well off-side.

Matters were made worse for the Roar when they found the back of the net themselves a minute later, only for Matt McKay to be ruled off-side after an excellent finish to Michael Zullo’s cross.

The loss was the Queenslanders’ third in four home games at Suncorp Stadium this season, continuing the Roar’s history of poor home form. In 37 home matches during four A-League seasons, the Roar have tasted victory only 10 times.

United departed for Singapore on a high this morning, where it will hold a training session on Sunday before heading to Tashkent for Wednesday’s historic 2nd leg in the AFC Champions League Semi Final.

Adelaide goalkeeper Galekovic ruled out with groin strain

Adelaide United goalkeeper Eugene Galekovic has been ruled out of tonight’s A-League match against Queensland Roar with a groin injury.

Galekovic injured his groin yesterday during a personalised training session with National Goalkeeping Coach Tony Franken in Brisbane.

“The injury doesn’t feel too bad, I just felt a strain when kicking the ball during the session with Tony,” Galekovic said.

“I will know more after the scan this afternoon but hopefully I will be ready to go on Wednesday.”

The 27 year old will have an MRI scan this afternoon but early indications are that the injury is not serious.

Adelaide Coach Aurelio Vidmar will now look to 17 year old Mark Birighitti to fill the void between the posts.

United’s medical staff will closely monitor Galekovic’s recovery over the next few days ahead of The Reds’ decisive AFC Champions League match against Bunyodkor/Kuruvchi.
