We won our match earlier today thanks to two goals from Scepovic and Samaris which put Panionios to the sword. We had an early evening kickoff which meant that I saw the game delayed. The early evening kickoff in the middle of the week didn't help the crowd achieve any sort of decent numbers either but this was to be expected.
It was kind of a shame that there were so few there as we played very well, certainly at the start of the game and Samaris' free kick which he scored from was a superb effort. Scepovic doubled the advantage a few minutes later and Samaris came close again (but wide) all in the first quarter of the match.
The remainder of the half didn't see any let up in our attacking. Scepovic rounded the keeper at one stage only to have the ball grabbed from his feet at the last moment and generally we looked very bright.
The second half saw more attacking play with the ball being cleared off the Panionios goalline at one stage. It was definitely good to see a decent display after the turgid affair on Sunday.
Perez was introduced in the 52nd minute to make his introduction to the team whilst Dominguez replaced Scepovic in the 59th. Scepovic put in a good display today and was unlucky not to have scored more than one goal.
In all, it was a good performance and a decent enough result. I believe that we have Veroia next (Saturday) and we should be really looking for another 3 points then.
