Commentary

FULL TIME - Adelaide United have made it into the round of eight in the FFA CUP, after a 1-0 win over the Lions, thanks to a 32nd minute goal from Goodwin, which sealed the Lions fate.
90' + 4' CHANCE! Brindall-South is in the box, all by himself. He attempts to head it for goal and it is wide of the mark.
90' + 2' Isaias goes down behind play. It is very suspicious as nobody was near him. He is fine to continue.
90' We have three minutes of stoppage time to be added onto the clock.
