Adelaide hold off fightback to close gap

Adelaide United held off a late fightback from Perth Glory to claim a 3-2 victory and close the gap on A-League leaders Central Coast Mariners to just a point.

United looked set for a routine win when substitute Jeronimo, an early replacement for Bruce Djite, scored in the 29th and 37th minutes before Iain Ramsay added a third just after half-time.

Shane Smeltz's penalty in the 89th minute appeared to be a late consolation but Steve McGarry narrowed the deficit to one goal immediately after, to leave Adelaide clinging to a victory that helped them keep the pressure on the Mariners.
