Poland round-up: Katowice go top

GKS Katowice moved clear of Odra Wodzislaw with victory at KS Groclin Grodzisk Wielkopolski.
GKS Katowice moved a point clear of Odra Wodzislaw at the top of the Polish Ekstraklasa with an impressive victory at KS Groclin Grodzisk Wielkopolski.

Bala has a ball
While Odra were held to a goalless draw at champions Legia Warszawa, Katowice were 2-0 winners in Grodzisk courtesy of a third-minute own goal from Tomasz Wieszczycki and a second-half strike from man of the match Adam Bala.

Legia stalemate
Meanwhile, Legia had defender Marek Jozwiak sent off in the second half of their stalemate with Wodzislaw.

Back to winning ways
Zaglebie Lubin ended a run of six straight defeats with a 3-1 home success against KP Polonia Warszawa. Goals from Lithuanian Nerius Radzius and Zabigniew Grzybowski secured three deserved points after Maciej Bykowski had cancelled out Marek Zajac's opener for the hosts.

Kuzba rocks
Wisla Kraków won 2-1 at KS Górnik Zabrze to move into third place thanks to Marcin Kuzba's double strike against his former club. Adam Kompala's second-half penalty for Górnik could not deny the visitors.

Lódz lose again
Dariusz Kozubek's 83rd-minute effort was enough for Garbarnia Szczakowianka Jaworzno to see off struggling Widzew Lódz, while Pogon Szczecin ended their nightmare start to the season with an emphatic first victory - 4-1 at home to KSZO Ostrowiec. Ostrowiec took the lead through Jaroslaw Popiela, but were undone by two goals from Rafal Pawlak and others from Ferdinand Chifon and Edin Saranovic.

No goals
The games between KS Ruch Chorzów and Wisla Plock, and KKS Lech Poznan and KS Amica Wronki, both ended goalless.
