Adelaide United put a big dent in Melbourne Heart’s A-League finals chances with a 2-0 victory at AAMI Park on Monday.

Dario Vidosic converted a soft penalty late in the opening half, before Iain Ramsay scored his fifth goal of the season shortly after the resumption to seal Adelaide’s first triumph away from home in eight attempts.

Despite the question marks surrounding the penalty, Adelaide’s victory was well deserved as they created the better chances throughout the game and were able to hold on to the ball more than their opponents.

Heart’s best opportunities fell to Nicholas Kalmar early in the contest, but he either missed the target when he should have scored, or was denied by an inspired Eugene Galekovic in Adelaide’s goal.

If Kalmar had taken one of his chances the match may have played out differently, but the visitors fully deserved their 12th triumph of the season.

Adelaide remain fourth on the table after the win, but draw within one point of Melbourne Victory in third place and six off the Central Coast Mariners in second.

Heart stay second bottom with 27 points, with sixth-placed Newcastle Jets three points ahead of them in the last finals berth and time seemingly slipping away for John Aloisi’s side to feature in the post-season for the second consecutive year.
