Leoš Loos flicks home Abel Soffia’s cross to restore our advantage.

For the second time in a week Brook Street ran out 4-1 winners this afternoon to maintain our unbeaten start to the season. Andrew Cleary opened the scoring at the rainswept Arena of Szczurek with just over twenty minutes played.

However the lead lasted just ten minutes before Jesús Segovia fired home the equaliser for FC Poland. With the match becoming bogged down in midfield, that marked the last goal attempt before half-time.

Brook Street continued to concentrate on attacking down the wings, and it was from one such move that they re-took the lead in the sixty-fourth minute. Abel Soffia was revelling in the conditions, and was giving his marker a torrid time. Having left him for dead he fired in a low cross that player-coach Leoš Loos met at the near post and deftly flicked it past the keeper.

A one goal lead is always precarious, so it came as some relief when Andrew Cleary hit his second of the game with eight minutes remaining. This forced FC Poland to chase the game which in turn left more gaps at the back, one of which was exploited by Nemanja Janković who put the game beyond doubt with Brook Street’s fourth goal four minutes from time.

Afterwards, Leoš said, “That could have been a bit of a bit of a banana-skin for us, but we played very well and got the win our play merited.

Then, speaking of Andrew Cleary’s brace he said, “Andrew has hit the ground running this season and already has five league goals to his name. He’s on fire at the moment, and long may that continue”.

He concluded by saying, “If we continue as we have started, we’ll be there or thereabouts at the end of the season”.
