Eyüphan puts us back in front with a stunning volley.

Brook Street snapped their three-game losing streak in style this afternoon with an excellent 4-1 win over EK Tuggers at New Home Park.

Eyüphan Toga fired us into a ninth minute lead, and although Tuggers equalised through Alfred Tornero eight minutes later, Eyüphan scored from a stunning volley with twenty-seven minutes on the clock.

It was 2-1 at the break, but with a goal in it, the lead was precarious. Andy Harte came close to increasing the lead nine minutes into the second half, but his shot came back off the post.

Indeed, it wasn’t until ten minutes from time that Brook Street made the game safe, Emanuel Bohucký rifling home from the penalty spot after substitute Andrew Cleary had been tripped in the box.

And it was Emanuel again who slammed in our fourth goal from a free-kick that left the Tuggers’ keeper rooted to the spot.

“It was a terrific performance from the lads, and they got their reward with this win”, beamed coach Marcus Lövman afterwards.

“We showed that killer instinct that’s been missing in recent weeks, and the goals that we scored today were tremendous”.

He continued, “Results elsewhere have gone our way today, and we now find ourselves only three points off top spot. It just goes to show how tight this division is that we’ve gone from floundering around in the play-off zone one week to three points off top spot. Everyone is capable of beating everyone else on their day”.

“In recent weeks we’ve been missing that ‘rub of the green’, but we got that today and we made the most of it”.

The other three matches in the division today produced what could be termed as “shocks”. Carbrain were held at home 2-2 by –*FC BARCELONA*- while Airth Castle stunned high-flying Kessler’s Eleven by winning 4-2 at The Turret, and Real Forfar defeated Vines Cross by the same scoreline at the Estadio de Luz.

Those results see Carbrain move onto twenty-one points while Kesslers, who we visit next week, are now only ahead of us on goal difference on eighteen points. Vines Cross are only a point further back, so there’s no room for complacency.
