The Queen of the North were sitting far from pretty after last weekend’s defeat to fellow strugglers Levadiakos, but they moved level on 19 points with Iraklis and are now also just three points adrift of Levadiakos in 14th spot - the first place outside the two relegation places.

First half goals from Pantelis Kapetanos - his second in as many matches - in the 20th minute and Dutch midfielder Jeffrey Sarpong (36) put the home side well in command going into half-time.

Despite an improved second half display from PAS, Veria held firm before adding a late third goal through Comorian midfielder Halifa Soule in the third minute of added time.
