An entertaining clash between Adelaide United and Sydney FC ended in a 0-0 draw on Sunday night.
Although Marco Kurz was forced to field a depleted starting XI due to a combination of injuries and international call-ups, the Reds showed no fear of the rampant league-leaders, with defensive pairing Ryan Strain and Jordan Elsey battling fiercely for every challenge at the ball.
A powerful strike from Jordy Buijs forced a great save from Daniel Margush, while Alex Brosque, Milos Ninkovic and Adrian Mierzejewski also created attacking pressure for Sydney, however, Adelaide had chances of their own on the counter attack.
Here are some of the best reactions to come from Twitter after the match:

Brilliant @AdelaideUnited. Pure guts from the kids tonight against Salary Cap FC
Kurz giving it to grumpy Arnold & his FFA darlings at full time = priceless.

How about our actual youth team taking a loss from the Vuck yesterday in order for our a-league youth team to take a point against SFC! #ADLvSYD
