Adelaide United edge Western Sydney 1-0

7:01 am on 13 October 2012

Adelaide United has seen off the visiting A-League football newcomers Western Sydney Wanderers 1-0, with an ice-cool goal by Argentinian import Jeronimo Neumann in the 69th minute the difference.

Jeronimo missed a contentious penalty just before the goal, making amends with a deft finish as the Reds banked consecutive wins to open their season.

The depleted Wellington Phoenix - missing seven internationals - play at Melbourne Heart on Sunday.
