Desparate win for Canberra 

Canberra desperately needed tonight’s three points to stay inside the top four.

The 2-1 win means Canberra remain in fourth spot on the ladder with ten points, just behind Sydney FC.

But United will need to continue their winning ways if they want to contend with Melbourne City, Sydney FC and the Western Sydney Wanderers.

These teams are miles ahead and are playing some quality football that has been unmatched by the rest of the competition.

Canberra’s head coach Heather Garriock said at half time that her side needed to pass the ball quicker and have a greater ability to change the point of attack.

It’s quickly becoming a three-horse race, so Garriock will be pleased with a 2-0 triumph over Adelaide.

Canberra United play the Wanderers next week, where they’ll be looking to keep in touch with the table leaders.
