Albania round-up: Triumph for Tirana two

The Liga e Pare title will go to the wire after KS Dinamo Tirana and SK Tirana won on Saturday.

The Albanian Liga e Pare title will go down to the wire after KS Dinamo Tirana and SK Tirana won on Saturday.

One-point lead
Tirana won 1-0 at KS Shkumbini thanks to Mahir Halili's 46th-minute effort, but Dinamo maintained their one-point lead in the table with a 2-1 win against KS Flamurtari. Dinamo had to come from behind with goals from Klodian Asllani and Ilir Qorri's penalty needed to protect their championship challenge.

Added-time strike
KS Teuta needed Gentian Begeja's added-time strike to see off KS Vllaznia 2-1. Elidon Demiraj had put the hosts ahead from the penalty spot after just five minutes but Vioresin Sinani levelled with his spot kick five minutes into the second half.

Relief for Luftëtari
Elsewhere, KS Bylis were too strong for KS Apolonia, seeing off the visitors 4-1 and KS Tomori took the spoils with a 3-2 win at home against KS Besëlidhja. Finally, KS Luftëtari gave their hopes of beating relegation a shot in the arm with a 3-0 win at home against KS Erzeni.
