Flores back for Wednesday night showdown
Adelaide United star Marcos Flores has been named in the Reds squad for tomorrow night’s (Wednesday, 10 November) match against Perth Glory at Hindmarsh Stadium.
Adelaide United star Marcos Flores has been named in the Reds squad for tomorrow night-s (Wednesday, 10 November) match against Perth Glory at Hindmarsh Stadium.
The Argentinean playmaker returns after missing Saturday-s 4-nil loss to the Brisbane Roar with a groin injury, giving Rini Coolen a little bit more balance to United-s midfield.
While the Reds are coming off consecutive loss, Adelaide are still in second spot on the Hyundai A-League table and wary of a Glory side ready to kick start their season.
“They (Perth) are looking for a victory moment and every game is a tough game in our league, and that definitely includes the one tomorrow,” Adelaide coach, Coolen said.
“But if I just watch my own team and we had some problems in the last few games, if I see our training today and the way we trained yesterday, we are definitely ready for the game tomorrow.”
“If we play the game like the same level of our training today, we don-t have to worry about anything.”
