Perth climb to third after win over Adelaide

6:09 am on 2 March 2012

Perth Glory have replaced the Wellington Phoenix in third place on the A-league football table after a 2-0 away win over Adelaide United.

The match was played before Adelaide's smallest ever home crowd of fewer than 6,000 spectators.

Perth are a point ahead of the Phoenix who're due to host Gold Coast on Sunday.

Football Federation Australia still hopes that game will go ahead after Gold Coast's licence was revoked, and FFA's chief executive Ben Buckley says there's a real determination within the team to play out the remainder of the season.
