Adelaide collected a much needed three points against Central Coast last weekend, scoring their first goal in 351 minutes to get by the wooden spooners-elect.
It’s hard to take too much confidence from that game considering the opponent and the general struggles of Adelaide to score.
Wellington on the other hand is in great form, scoring for fun in convincing wins over the Mariners, Wanderers and Jets to move up to fourth spot.
As it stands this matchup will be repeated in the first round of the finals and a Wellington win would almost ensure that game is in New Zealand.
The market appears to be very confident in Adelaide but with their recent form it’s hard to mirror that confidence.
