    Adelaide United coach Guillermo Amor is demanding more from his players after their stirring draw against Korea’s Jeju United.

    The Reds twice came from behind on Wednesday night in Adelaide, in a 3-3 draw – banking their first Asian Champions League point in the process.

    But while full of praise for the character of his side, Amor now wants more.

    “The result is one point – we need more points,” he said.

    Adelaide remarkably twice equalised within a minute of the Koreans scoring, in a match which unexpectedly caught fire – after a scoreless opening half, the six goals came in a frenzied 34-minute span.

    Amor said the Reds could take great heart from their fightbacks.

    “The players, it’s true that they play and work very well,” he said.

    “This is football … in the moment of 1-2, and 2-3, it was difficult.”

    The Reds were advantaged by a nine-day rest entering the fixture – the Koreans played in their domestic league last Saturday before travelling to Australia.

    Adelaide, now with a draw and two losses in the Asian tournament, now turn their attention to the A-League where they are anchored in last spot ahead of Sunday’s home match against Brisbane.
