Melbourne Victory inflicted Adelaide United's first defeat of the season as they came from behind to beat the A-League leaders 2-1 at Etihad Stadium.

Iain Fyfe had taken advantage of a defensive lapse to open the scoring for the visitors inside the first minute but Robbie Kruse levelled 20 minutes later with a low shot from outside the box.

Carlos Hernandez then instigated an attacking move midway through the second-half that the Costa Rican midfielder finished to give Melbourne their tenth consecutive triumph over Adelaide.
