Adelaide United’s misery has continued with Guillermo Amor and Jordan O’Doherty both dismissed in a 3-1 defeat to Perth Glory at nib Stadium on Friday night. Andy Keogh scored twice after half-time to cap a Glory fightback after the visitors opened the scoring courtesy of Josh Risdon’s own goal. Rostyn Griffiths quickly equalised for the home side, before Keogh completed the turnaround with his first in the 67th minute. The visitors then had Amor sent from the touchline before winger O’Doherty followed his coach into the sheds for a second yellow just minutes later. Tensions continued to flare until Keogh punished Adelaide on the counter-attack for his second and Perth’s first win in four matches.
