Australian Football: Rudan disappointed with stalemate

Western Sydney Wanderers boss Mark Rudan felt his side created enough chances to beat Adelaide United and was disappointed to take a point in a goalless draw.

The Wanderers are priced at 7/2 to finish in the top six of the A-League and Rudan believes it was a case of two points dropped at CommBank Stadium on Sunday.

Chances galore

Western Sydney dominated early proceedings but could not find a way past a resolute Adelaide United defence.

Ryan Kitto rattled the woodwork with a low drive, while Keijiro Ogawa missed a great chance to put his side ahead when unmarked at the far post but could only put his header wide.

Wanderers appoint Rudan

Rudan was hoping his side would be able to build on the three points they picked up in Adelaide earlier in the week but it wasn’t to be and they had to settle for a share of the points.

"I'm disappointed for my players, they worked extremely hard and the effort was there," Rudan told reporters after the game. "I feel like we dropped two points tonight to be honest, that's how it feels."

Reds lack cutting edge

It was not all Wanderers though and Adelaide did have chances of their own to grab the points. Indeed United coach Carl Veart also felt the Reds did enough to win the game.

"I think we had some good control in the game. I just don't think we made the most of our possession," he said. "We just needed to be a little bit more clinical in the front half."
