Platanias fight back to draw with Apollon Smyrni
GREEK SUPERLEAGUE - MATCHDAY 20
|Platanias||1 - 1||Apollon Smyrnis|
|Petropoulos 81'||Kontoes 68'|
The SuperLeague relegation trapdoor is edging further open for Platanias after the Cretan club could only muster a 1-1 home draw with fellow strugglers Apollon Smyrni on Monday’s final matchday 20 fixture.
Apollon took a 68th-minute lead through Giannis Kontoes’ first career goal, but they were pegged back with nine minutes left by a goal from Platanias’ Greek striker Antonis Petropoulos.
Although Petropoulos’ goal salvaged a draw for Platanias, the result is a far better one for Apollon, who moved one point clear of the drop zone ahead of Kerkyra.
Platanias’ future in the top flight is looking increasingly bleak as the Chania club remain bottom with just 10 points from 20 matches, a record which means they are five points behind Apollon who occupy 14th place.
