Poland round-up: Wodzislaw lead the way

A Pawel Sibik penalty earned Odra Wodzislaw a 1-0 win at Zaglebie Lubin on Saturday.

A Pawel Sibik penalty earned Odra Wodzislaw a 1-0 win at Zaglebie Lubin on Saturday and sent his side top of the Ekstraklasa.

Sibik from the spot
Midfield player Sibik scored from the spot two minutes into the second half, enabling his side to leapfrog GKS Katowice into first place after the former leaders had dropped vital points at KS Ruch Chorzów on Friday night.

Two-point lead
Katowice were protecting a two-point lead at the top of the table when they lost 2-0 in the Ruch stadium. Goals from Damian Gorawski and Kryzsztof Bizacki did the damage.

Ostrowiec miss out
KSZO Ostrowiec could have claimed a place among the leaders on Saturday night but they also lost away from home against KS Groclin-Dyskobolia Grodzisk thanks to Grzegorz Rasiak's solitary goal five minutes before half-time. The home side did well to hold on after defender Artur Januszewski was sent off after 68 minutes.

Lech battle
In Saturday's other games Lech Poznán battled to earn a 2-2 draw at home against Wisla Plock, while bottom side Pogon Szczecin were beaten 3-1 at home by KS Górnik Zabrze.

Hosts' comebacks
Two games on Sunday both ended in home wins, although on both occasions the hosts had to come from behind. Garbania Szczakowianka Jaworzno had fallen behind to Mateusz Bartczak's 12th-minute opener for KP Polonia Warszawa, but Janusz Wolanski equalised just before the break and Dariusz Kozubek scored twice in seven second-half minutes to seal a 3-1 victory.

Zielinski steals it
In the other game, Legia Warszawa were trailing TS Wisla Kraków 2-1 until 22 minutes from time, when Cezary Kucharski levelled the scores and set the stage for Jacek Zielinski to steal all three points late on.
