Gold Coast United v Melbourne Heart

“The last time I saw that much connection with woodwork was in GCSE Design and Technology”

These were the words I uttered to my girlfriend after returning home from The A-League clash between Gold Coast United and Melbourne Heart.

Flying Dutchman Paul Beekmans should have really notched up his first goal for the club,however he was denied twice by both posts that were to be the Heart of Melbourne’s defence.

While 1-1 was ultimately a fair result after the southern teams dominating first half performance. Sympathy must be had for The Gold Coast players who carved out the better opportunities. However a strike from ** in the latter stages of the game almost denied them this but the effort cannoned the underside of the bar.

Standout performances for The Coast included Kristian Rees who dominated at the back and up top, shown as his strike across goal was flicked in by a teammate however inexplicably credited to Rees cancelled out the opener by Melbourne’s Kristian Sarkies.

Despite this promising performance Gold Coast still stay rooted to the bottom of the A-League ladder as Melbourne Heart sit comfortably in **

Final score (including woodwork hits)

Gold Coast United -1 (82)
Melbourne Heart -1 (6)
