With Airth Castle’s surprise goal-less draw at home to Vines Cross, Brook Street blasted themselves two points clear at the top of the league with a 6-0 demolition of Edinburgh-KSZO at New Home Park this afternoon.

Coach Marcus Lövman rang the changes following last Saturday’s lacklustre performance in Edinburgh, with Andy Harte dropping to the bench and being replaced by Zsolt Baboss. However both Germán Olmos Ribas and Abel Soffia dropped out altogether, being replaced by Oscar MacVarish and Garabed Palasyan respectively.

Brook Street made the perfect start, going ahead with only three minutes on the clock through Oleg Zhigalov. Continuing to press, the home side got their reward twenty minutes later when Oscar MacVarish rose unchallenged to power home a header to double our lead.

Despite dominating play, Brook Street failed to create any more chances in the first half, however in a devastating seven-minute spell after the break, they netted a further four goals to kill the match stone dead.

Recent signing Eyüphan Toga set the ball rolling three minutes after the restart, netting his first goal for the club, and Attila Gyöngyösi made it 4-0 a minute later.

Eyüphan fired in his second of the match in the fifty-fourth minute and Garabed Palasyan wrapped-up the scoring a minute later.

“I wanted a positive reaction to the criticism of last week’s performance, and that’s exactly what I got”, smiled Marcus at the post-match press conference.

“Last Saturday’s display was no-where near good enough and we let the players know that at training this week. I made three changes from last week, and the fact that two of the players scored proves I was right”.

He also paid credit to Eyüphan Toga who has taken time to settle, but who netted his first two goals for the club. “Eyüphan came here with a very impressive scoring rate, so he was disappointed to have failed to score in his first two games. That has totally changed now, and I know he will go on to score a lot of goals here”.
