Adelaide United drew Western Sydney Wanderers 2-2 to seal a spot in the playoffs of the A-League on Thursday. Needing only a point to secure their spot in the finals, the hosts had to come back to level scores in the second half after trailing 1-2 at the break. The Wanderers were reduced to ten men after Tass Mourdoukoutas was shown a straight red card late in the first half. While the result guarantees a spot for Adelaide in the finals, they would need to await the result of the Macarthur FC match that would determine the final spots in the standings. The Wanderers finished 8th in the table while only the top six qualify for the playoffs.
