Doxa Drama end Apollon Pontou’s hopes for second
GREEK FOOTBALL LEAGUE - MATCHDAY 28
|Doxa Dramas||4 - 0||Apollon Pontou|
Doxa Drama rallied to a 4:0 win over Apollon Pontou to end the Thessalonikis’ hopes for a second place finish.
Two goals from Kritikos (12, 25) in the first half followed by markers from Petavrakis (61) and Martins (69) gave Doxa Drama an emphatic 4:0 win over Apollon Pontou is Thursday’s Football League action.
The result moves Doxa Drama into eighth place with 42 points, three points ahead of tenth placed AE Karaiskakis and Iraklis. The side from Drama will look to wrap up at minimum a tenth placed finish in their final two games (@ AOX Kissamikos, v Ergotelis) to ensure their participation in next year’s second division, the Super League 2.
On the other hand, Apollon Pontou are mathematically out of the running for second place and a shot at the Super League relegation/promotion playoff at the end of the season. The Thessalonikis sit in fourth with 46 points, six points behind second placed Platanias, but cannot overturn the six-point deficit in their final two games as they fell to Platanias twice this season (0:1, 3:1) and are in inferior in a possible tiebreaker.
