Adelaide win to stay in A-league playoff contention

6:12 am on 12 December 2010

Dutchman Sergio van Dijk joined A-League football's top scorers during Adelaide United's clinical 2-0 home win over cellar dwellers North Queensland on Friday night.

Van Dijk headed his eighth goal of the season after gifted playmaker Marcos Flores set the tone for a lopsided contest with a fifth minute breakthrough.

Adelaide's seventh win in a row on home turf at Hindmarsh Stadium moved them within four points of competition pacesetters the Brisbane Roar.

North Queensland remain on the bottom of the table with just three wins.
