It is approaching do or die territory for Melbourne Victory, who will attempt to turn their A-League season around against Adelaide United on Saturday night (kick off 7.10pm AEDT).
Grant Brebner’s side are reeling from their 6-0 Melbourne Derby hammering to Melbourne City last time out and suffered more bad news during this week with star New Zealand international Marco Rojas ruled out for six to eight weeks with a fractured fibula.
Victory are four points adrift of 11th-placed Newcastle Jets ahead of kick off, having lost seven of their 10 matches.
Meanwhile, rivals Adelaide United have hit excellent form having picked up three consecutive wins against Central Coast Mariners, Western Sydney Wanderers and Newcastle Jets. A fourth straight victory could see the Reds finish the weekend in second place should results elsewhere go their way.
