The pick of the bunch: Abel Soffia drives home our fourth goal following a fine solo run.

Two goals from Abel Soffia along with strikes from Zsolt Baboss, Attila Gyöngyösi and Leoš Loos gave Brook Street a crucial 5-0 win at St Mongos in the Tayside derby this afternoon.

Title rivals Basel-Celtic were also winning 5-0, but Stirling Bridge could only manage a 1-1 draw at Maxum and saw their lead in the Division reigned in to just a point with two to play.

“We’ve everything still to play for”, said Leoš Loos at the post-match press conference. “We’re only a point behind and have a much better goal difference”. He did however concede, “The other two sides have much easier run-ins, so we’re really needing them to slip up. However, as today proved, that’s always possible, but we have to take maximum points”.

He continued, “My biggest regret this season is the amount of points we have thrown away. Had we taken even some of them, we would have been out in front. That’s the real frustrating thing”.

Brook Street got off to the perfect start against St Mongos with Zsolt Baboss opening the scoring after only three minutes and Attila Gyöngyösi doubled the lead just before the half-hour mark.

Abel Soffia hit his brace in fifty and seventy minutes before Leoš Loos wrapped up the scoring with seventeen minutes to go.

“It was very pleasing to get another clean sheet, and up top we scored very good goals”, said the coach. “We took every one of our chances, so I can’t ask for more than that”, he added.
