Poland round-up: Odra defy the odds

Odra Wodzislaw maintained top spot with a 3-1 win against KS Groclin Grodzisk Wielkopolski.
Jacek Ziarkowski struck twice as Odra Wodzislaw maintained top spot in Poland with a 3-1 win against KS Groclin Grodzisk Wielkopolski.

Two for Ziarkowski
Ziarkowski set Wodzislaw on their way with goals on 20 and 43 minutes before former Groclin midfield player Piotr Rocki underlined the home side's dominance with a third after 55 minutes. A late lapse allowed the visitors to pull back a consolation goal through defender Lukasz Gorszkow with just a minute of normal time remaining.

Early strike suits Katowice
GKS Katowice stayed in second place, two points clear of TS Wisla Kraków, after a ninth-minute strike from Robert Sierka was enough to see off Zaglebie Lubin. But Wisla kept up their challenge as Marcin Kuzba's second-half double earned a 3-0 win against Pogon Szczecin.

Djokovic leaves it late
A last-minute goal from Veselin Djokovic put KS Amica Wronki level on points with Wisla. Their visitors, KS Górnik Zabrze, thought they had claimed a share of the points after Grzegorz Król's early strike for the home side was cancelled out by Jacek Wisniewski's 79th-minute goal but it was not to be.

Level pegging in Warsaw
Legia Warszawa and neighbours KP Polonia Warszawa were tied on 10 points after champions Legia were held 1-1 at KSZO Ostrowiec, while Polonia prevailed 2-1 against KS Ruch Chorzów. Sebastian Keska and Maciej Bykowski registered for Polonia either side of a Krzysztof Bizacki strike for Ruch.

Relegation worries
In Saturday's other game, Garbarnia Szczakowianka Jaworzno failed to ease their relegation worries, going down 2-1 defeat at Wisla Plock. On Friday, fellow strugglers Widzew Lódz and Lech Poznán drew 2-2.
