Iraklis put together a great display on the road to defeat Volos NFC 0:2, handing the current league leaders their first defeat of the season. The Thessalonikis, who have had a rocky start to the Football League season, have now gone four games without tasting defeat and have climbed into sixth place in the table. Volos NFC sit six points clear of second placed Kerkyra, who host Aiginiakos on Sunday.

Iraklis opened the scoring at a critical point in the game as Gnabouyou found the back of the net in the final minute of the first half, sending the visitors ahead into the break. The hosts looked to pull even after the restart but it was Perone who sealed the three points for the Giraos, with a cheeky lobbed effort in the 69th minute.

In the Football League’s other Saturday fixture, Platanias and Apollon Larissas played to a goalless draw. The result keeps Platanias in fourth with 23 points while Apollon Larissas are third with 25 points, seven points behind leaders Volos NFC.
