Wellington thumped

Aap
Saturday, March 01, 2014

ADELAIDE - Striker Jeronimo Neumann scored twice as Adelaide United's foreign brigade sparked a 5-1 torching of Wellington Phoenix in Thursday night's A-League fixture.

The Reds scored two goals in a six-minute span in the first half, with Argentine Jeronimo's long-range bullet followed by a near tap-in for Spaniard Sergio Cirio.

Adelaide's Portuguese winger Fabio Ferreira scored in the second stanza with a sweet strike before he fed Jeronimo his second goal.

Wellington's Kenny Cunningham pegged one back before Adelaide's Kenyan-born winger Awer Mabil netted in injury time.

Adelaide climbed to third on the ladder, though Melbourne Victory can re-take that spot with a win or draw in Saturday night's derby against Melbourne Heart.

The Reds' form is compelling as they just twice in their past dozen matches.
