Albania round-up: Dinamo cling to top spot

KS Dinamo Tirana hang on to top spot after fighting from 2-0 down to win 3-2 against KS Tomori.

KS Dinamo Tirana hung on to top spot in the Albanian first division on Saturday after fighting back from two goals down to win 3-2 against KS Tomori.

Thrilling fightback
Tomori's Fatmir Veizi stunned the leaders with two goals inside the opening ten minutes but Dinamo hauled themselves back into the game and Rigels Qosa finally struck the winner six minutes from time to keep his side in pole position for a UEFA Champions League qualifying spot.

Tirana in the hunt
SK Tirana are a point behind Dinamo in second place after Indrit Fortuzi scored the goal in a 1-0 win over KF Lushnja. Third-placed KS Partizani thrashed KS Erzeni 5-0 with all the goals coming from their Brazilian contingent. Abilio scored twice, while his compatriots Marcelinjo, Karioka and Rosha added the others.

Upset for Teuta
KS Luftëtari upset KS Teuta with a 1-0 win, while KS Shkumbini beat KS Bylis by the same scoreline. KS Apolonia overcame KS Flamurtari 2-0 with two goals either side of half-time. In the day's other game Besëlidhja drew 0-0 with KS Vllaznia.
