Nichols and Andreu preview Adelaide
We caught up with both Mitch Nichols and Andreu before training on Thursday to talk about the upcoming Adelaide blockbuster.
Guillermo Amor’s Reds were odds on for the wooden spoon earlier in the season after no wins in their first eight but fourteen unbeaten matches later and Saturday’s visitors find themselves in the midst of the tightest premiership race in seasons.
Although Adelaide’s reputation as one of the most stylish outfits in the Hyundai A-League has been maintained by Amor, key to their resurrection this campaign has been their organisation at the back.
The Reds have kept a league-high ten clean sheets this season and conceded only nine goals in their last 15 matches. Their resilience was on show during their last visit to Wanderland – a 0-0 draw on New Year’s Day.
