Yugoslavia round-up: Partizan march on

FK Partizan go into the winter break with a clear lead at the top of the 1st Liga after a 3-1 win on Saturday.

FK Partizan go into the winter break with a clear lead at the top of the 1st Liga after a 3-1 win on Saturday.

Trobuk on target
Goran Trobuk scored twice in the first half to cancel out a 13-second goal for FK Sutjeska. Vuk Rasovic had turned a cross into his own net to gift the visitors the lead before Trobuk converted crosses from Nenad Miskovic and Andrija Delibasic in the first 20 minutes to put Partizan ahead.

Penalty saved
Sasa Ilic had a 23rd-minute penalty for Partizan saved by Vukasin Poleksic and the Belgrade side had to wait until the 85th minute for Danko Lazovic to collect Ljubisa Rankovic's through-ball and finish calmly for Partizan's third.

Crvena Zvezda slump
Partizan's joy was doubled at full time with the news that second-placed FK Crvena Zvezda had succumbed to a surprise 2-0 defeat at struggling FK Cucaricki. Two goal from Mitar Novakovic in the 14th and 62nd minutes handed Crvena Zvezda only their second defeat of the season.

Obilic go down
Third-placed FK Obilic suffered further indignity after their 3-1 defeat to Partizan on Thursday with a 3-1 defeat at FK Mladost Lucani with two goals in the last ten minutes from Zoran Djuraskovic dampening their title hopes.

Sartrid miss opportunity
FK Sartid are in fourth place despite letting a 2-0 lead slip against away at FK Zeta. A 25-metre free-kick from Vladimir Mudrinic gave Sartrid a 43rd-minute lead, and Mudrinic turned provider to lay on a headed goal for Demir Ramovic on 48 minutes before Zeta rallied with two goals from Dejan Batrovic.

More misery for Apatin
At the foot of the table, FK Mladost Apatin conceded three first half goals as they slumped to a 3-0 defeat at FK Radnicki Kragujevac. Meanwhile, FK Zeleznik comprehensively defeated FK Rad 3-0, FK Hajduk Kula won 3-1 against FK Zvezdara and FK Rudar Plevlja and FK Vojvodina shared the spoils in a 0-0 draw.
