Adelaide United 'can still make finals'

Adelaide United maintain they can still make the A-League finals despite languishing last with five matches remaining.

Coach Aurelio Vidmar says the Reds' task is simple: win, starting Tuesday night when they host Perth Glory.

Adelaide have 23 points, four shy of the sixth-placed Glory.

"A win will put us one point behind them and after that, it's about winning because we can't do anything else," Vidmar said on Monday.

Reds captain Travis Dodd (hip) remains in doubt for the match, with Vidmar summoning Robbie Cornthwaite, Scott Jamieson and Alemao to a squad missing Kristian Sarkies (thigh).

The Adelaide coach lamented eight draws this season, the most in the competition apart from Wellington (10 draws).

"We have just got to keep believing and keep knocking on the door," he said.

"It's a fine line between winning more games and only one point for a draw.

"The more games you do that, the harder it gets during the course of the year, and obviously only winning five games doesn't put you in a very strong position."

But fullback Daniel Mullen said the fact Adelaide remained a prospect of reaching the playoffs had bolstered the players.

Mullen described the Perth fixture as "the club's biggest game of the season.

"It's pretty much a final," he said.

"I don't think you would see any league in the world where you get so many chances to make the finals.

"In that aspect we are very lucky to still be here and be able to make the finals, so now we have got ride our luck and hopefully get a few results and anything can happen."
