-- A DRAW THAT BENEFITS NO ONE --
GREEK SUPERLEAGUE - MATCHDAY 17
|Iraklis||1 - 1||Veria|
|Stamou 51'||Linardos 59'|
Iraklis took a further step towards relegation from the SuperLeague on Saturday as the Thessaloniki club tossed away a one-goal lead against fellow strugglers Veria as their Matchday 17 encounter ended in a 1-1 stalemate.
Despite a promising performance at the Kaftanzoglio Stadium which saw Iraklis move into a 1-0 lead thanks to defender Dimitris Stamou’s 51st minute strike, the home side took their foot off the gas and allowed the visitors to equalize through Panagiotis Linardos just eight minutes later.
It was a result which helped neither side’s cause in their fight to stay in the top flight, with basement boys Iraklis propping up the table on eight points having played 15 matches. Veria are just five points better off in 14th place.
