Wanderers happy after big win

WESTERN Sydney is now just four points away from first-placed Central Coast after an entertaining 4-2 win over Adelaide United at Hindmarsh Stadium yesterday.

The Reds, who were left in disarray going into the game following the resignation of former coach John Kosmina, had their opponents locked at 0-all for most of the first half.

But disaster struck in the last five minutes of the opening stanza, with goals to Youssouf Hersi and Mark Bridge.

Hersi finished off a goal-line scramble, before Bridge found the back of the net from close range thanks to a beautiful pass from Hersi.

Hersi got his second early in the second half, before the hosts hit back just after the hour thanks to a Bruce Djite left-foot drive into the bottom corner.

Mateo Poljak put the game beyond doubt shortly afterwards with a cool-headed finish to beat Reds goalkeeper Eugene Galekovic.

Iain Ramsay got a consolation goal in the dying stages, with the Wanderers' defence caught napping.

The Reds have now lost their past three straight games, and interim coach Michael Valkanis faces a tough task in turning this form slump around.

The third-placed Wanderers have won their past four games, going three points clear of the Reds with yesterday's win.
