A second-half hat-trick from midfield player Krisztián Kenesei did the trick for ZTE, who are now seven points clear of Ferencvárosi TC in third position. Gyor's consolation came from Attila Baumgartner in injury time, but by then the home side had lost goalkeeper Levente Molnár to a red card.
MTK lead the way
Zalaegerszeg are ten points behind NB. 1 leaders MTK Hungária FC, who play on Saturday. Gyor remain tenth, though will drop into the bottom two if Haladás VFC can beat MFC Sopron.
