GREEK FOOTBALL LEAGUE - MATCHDAY 21
|Platanias||1 - 0||Ergotelis|
In their Cretan Derby match-up, Platanias managed to defeat Ergotelis 1:0 at the Perivolia Municipal Stadium, as the hosts struck the only goal on the stroke of half time.
Before a ball was kicked, only two points separated the teams in the Football League standings, and it was Platanias who kept their promotion hopes alive with a crucial 1:0 victory in front of their home fans.
With half time looming, the ball fell to the lurking Giannis Loukinas in the penalty area, and he struck a fierce attempt into the roof of the net to score the only goal of the match. Ergotelis fought hard to get back into the match, but despite their best efforts, they failed to break Platanias down.
After 21 rounds, Platanias occupy fourth place of the Football League table, trailing second-placed Apollon Larissa by four points as they still harbour hopes of promotion to the Super League. Ergotelis have fallen away and now sit in a distant seventh position.
