Apollon Smyrnis and Lamia were victorious on Thursday to keep their leads over Aris and OFI (also recorded wins) in the fight for Superleague promotion. Kalloni fell to Kissamikos and are in serious trouble as they sit in the relegation zone.
Apollon Smyrnis continue to lead the way in this year’s Football League after recording another win, this time away to Acharnaikos 0-2. Both goals were scored in the first half with Siatravanis (14) and Albanis (35) finding the back of the net. The result leaves Apollon 3 points ahead of Lamia in the standings and nine points ahead of third placed Aris.
Lamia left Evosmos with all three points (0-1) over Agrotikos Asteras thanks to a 72nd minute goal from Rocha, keeping their six point lead over third placed Aris. The result keeps Lamia as the clear favorites to earn promotion to next year’s Superleague. Highlights
Aris stayed alive in the fight for promotion with their 0-1 win over Panegialios on the road. Kapnidis’ goal eight minutes after the restart separated the sides at the final whistle as Aris trail second placed Lamia by six points. Highlights
An early 3rd minute goal from Vouho was enough for OFI to earn the victory in Serres over Panserraikos. The result keeps OFI in fourth place, 11 points behind Lamia. Highlights
Trikala kept up their good form with a 0-2 win on the road against Anagennisi Karditsas and sit in 5th place only 2 points behind OFI.
Kalloni, who were relegated from last year's Superleague, could very well be relegated for a second straight season after falling away to Kissamikos 4-1. The team from Mytilene sit 6 points away from safety.
Aiginiakos, who hold the final “safety” spot, dropped points at home to bottom of the table Panelefsiniakos in a goalless draw.
In a rather indifferent match, Sparti defeated Chania 3-1.
Kallithea were awarded the three points over Panthrakikos.
