Melbourne City have shown glimpses of title-winning swagger in Friday nights 2-1 win over Adelaide United at AAMI Park.Bruno Fornarolis goals either side of halftime improved City to second on the A-League table.A first A-League goal for Sergi Guardiola frayed City nerves but John van t Schips side held on to bounce back from last rounds home defeat.Adelaide played their part in an entertaining game but took too long to click into gear, falling to a third-straight loss and their first away defeat of 2016.When City purred into action, the champions couldnt lay a glove on them.Citys link-up play in attack - where Fornaroli and Fernando Brandan threatened at will - dazzled the Reds defence.Brandans show-stopping backheel nutmeg of former City defender Ben Garuccio showed Citys intent.Soon after, Luke Brattan - playing as a No.10 and auditioning for a place in the Socceroos squad in front of coach Ange Postecoglou - sparked the first goal.Brattan hassled Tarek Elrich out of the ball, allowing Brandan to feed Fornaroli on the edge of the box.The Uruguayan bent his back and arched his shot inside the back post past Eugene Galekovic.Fornaroli should have had two before halftime, sidefooting over the bar late in the half when a fiercer strike might have done the job.With seconds left before halftime, United almost made City pay for their missed chances when Ryan Kitto rattled the crossbar from Isaias free kick.City upped the ante after the break and United couldnt go with them, earning successive yellow cards for late tackles and then conceding a second goal.Brandan, the shortest man on the pitch, sent a header from Brattans corner into Guardiolas outstretched arm. Fornaroli converted the penalty.City looked on track for a routine win but, in trademark style, gave their home fans grief by failing to close out the game.But when Dylan McGowan spooned a loose ball over from close range, it was clear City would stand firm for a steadying win.Van t Schip said he was delighted his side managed the fatigue factor, after a 2-0 FFA Cup semi-final win over Melbourne Victory just three days earlier.The mindset was very strong ... they were outstanding with their attitude, work rate and helping each other, he said.The Dutchman said Tim Cahill was suffering from soreness in his achilles and couldnt guarantee his fitness for next Fridays match against Brisbane.Adelaide coach Guillermo Amor said he would prefer to have more than one point from his sides opening four games but noted the similarities to last years title-winning season.The season is long. We must improve and learn things. Our squad is a good squad ... I have confidence.

Ringstar Sports promoter Richard Schaefer -- back in boxing after 2 1/2 years away after resigning as chief executive of Golden Boy Promotions, which he co-founded with Oscar De La Hoya -- continued to beef up his stable of young talent on Monday.Schaefer announced that he has signed 22-year-old welterweight Eimantas Stanionis, a highly coveted 2016 Lithuanian Olympian.Being able to add a fighter like Eimantas Stanionis to our growing group of world class fighters is a great pleasure, Schaefer said. Stanionis is a very accomplished young man who works very hard at his craft. He could be the next great Eastern European fighter to come over to the U.S. and make it big. We expect him to make big waves in the welterweight division. Now that he has joined Ringstar, we are looking forward to working with him and making his dreams a reality.Stanionis is the fourth fighter Schaefer has signed in recent weeks. Previously, he signed two other 2016 Olympians: American lightweight Carlos Balderas and middleweight Misael Rodriguez, a bronze medalist for Mexico.

He won gold at the 2015 European Championships.At the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in August, Stanionis won his opening-round match, and then was eliminated by eventual silver medalist Shakhram Giyasov, of Uzbekistan.He really impressed us at the Olympics, Schaefer said. I am very fortunate to have him. He has several TV stations in Lithuania that are interested in his fights and have already talked to us. The kid is going to be a big star in Lithuania, but his style is extremely fan-friendly and going to appeal to boxing fans wherever they are from. I expect big things from him.Schaefer said Stanionis will make his professional debut in late February in Los Angeles on a card that will also feature the pro debuts of the Balderas brothers and Rodriguez.I am a hard puncher, and I do whatever it takes to win, Stanionis said. I think boxing fans will be excited by my style. I want to be the first world champion ever from Lithuania. My goal is to make history.
