Serbian forward Miloš Deletić scored the only goal of the game four minutes from full-time to clinch three vital points for Ilias Fytanidis’ side and send the home fans home in jubilant mood.

The result moved the Vissini, who are unbeaten since a 2-1 Matchday 7 loss to Panathinaikos, up to 11th place in the standings with 13 points after 11 matches, while Apollon remain 13th with 10 points.

Two dismissals could not stop a determined Kerkyra team from claiming a hard-earned point at Lamia in an ill-tempered match which ended 1-1.

Lamia, who are unbeaten since Matchday 7, fell behind to Giorgos Pamlidis’ early sixth-minute goal for the visitors, who began brightly at the Lamia Municipal Stadium.

But the home side pulled a goal back from the penalty spot through Spanish forward Piti on the stroke of half-time. Several minutes of madness followed from the visitors as defender Aristidis Soiledis and midfielder Sotiris Balafas were both sent off in added time before the half-time whistle for picking up second yellow cards.

Lamia proceeded to lay siege to the visitors’ goal in the second half but couldn’t find a way through, and had to settle for a point which moved them from 12th to eighth spot.
