Winger Iain Ramsay revived Adelaide United's flagging A-Leagueseason with the match-winner in a 2-1 triumph over Gold Coast lastnight.
Ramsay's deft finish delivered Adelaide a game-breaking goal andtheir second win of the season.
Adelaide midfielder Zenon Caravella earlier scored against hisold club, before unluckily equalising for Gold Coast with an owngoal.
Gold Coast effectively sold the encounter, playing a nominalhome match on Adelaide's turf at Hindmarsh Stadium.
The fixture attracted only 6,368 spectators, and the result leftGold Coast in a lower ladder logjam.
The Reds leapt from ninth to equal sixth with Ramsay andCaravella playing pivotal roles.
Caravella, who crossed to Adelaide from Gold Coast this season,punctuated an influential display with a 57th minute goal.
The industrious midfielder was on the end of a Ramsay sliceacross the face of goal which drew out, then passed, Gold Coast'keeper Glen Moss.
With Moss grounded, Caravella slotted accurately at an unguardedgoal.
But just nine minutes later, Caravella innocently scored an owngoal - unable to get out of the way of a James Brown blast whichstruck him on a shin and deflected into the net.
Reds left winger Ramsay then capped a sterling game two minuteslater with the decider, fooling a Gold Coast defender with a slickturn inside, followed by a clever finish from 10 metres out on hisnon-preferred right boot.
The 11-minute goal flurry followed a scoreless opening half, inwhich Adelaide enjoyed vastly more possession but mustered just twoshots on target.
Gold Coast also struggled to penetrate Adelaide's defence in afirst half chiefly notable for an injury to prolific Redsgoal-scorer Serg van Dijk.
Last season's Golden Boot winner was forced from the field inthe 33rd minute with a calf injury.
