Adelaide United will hope to bounce back from a mini slump as when they host Western United in an A-League fixture at Cooper’s Stadium. Adelaide have a fine home record and should have the upper hand over their visitors who are poor on the road.

Adelaide United suffered a 2-1 defeat against Wellington Phoenix in their previous A-League fixture. They took the lead through Stefan Mauk but failed to hold on and conceded twice in the second half.

Things have not been particularly smooth for Adelaide in recent weeks with just one win from their last five matches. That run has seen them drop to third on the table, two points behind leaders Melbourne City.

Having been on the road in their last two fixtures, manager Carl Veart will be pleased to return to Cooper’s Stadium. They have claimed four wins in their last five matches on their own turf and triumphed 3-1 against Macarthur in their previous home match.

Western United knocked off bottom team Newcastle Jets 2-0 in their previous A-League fixture. An own goal from Nikolai Topor-Stanley put them ahead early in the contest while Dylan Pierias struck the second after the break.

A place in the final series playoff is the target for Western United, who are currently sixth on the table, two points above Wellington Phoenix in seventh. Mark Rudan has seen his team suffer just one defeat in their last six Serie A matches.

The problem for Western United is their poor form on their travels having suffered three defeats in their last four away matches. They were beaten 3-2 by Wellington Phoenix in their last fixture on the road.
