Serbia and Montenegro round-up: Partizan closing in

FK Partizan moved a step closer to the title with a 3-2 away victory against FK Rudar Pljevlja.

FK Partizan moved a step closer to the Prva Savezna Liga title following a 3-2 away victory against bottom side FK Rudar Pljevlja.

Partizan hold on
The leaders took the lead after 16 minutes with a goal from Andrija Delibasic, before two goals in three minutes from Danko Lazovic shortly before the hour put the home side in control. However, it was 3-2 within six minutes, as Dragan Radoncic and Sead Babaca brought Rudar back into the match, but Partizan held on to secure an important win.

Important victory
Second-placed FK Crvena Zvezda remained 13 points behind the leaders with a 2-0 win at OFK Beograd, who slipped to fourth place. Despite playing with ten men for most of the game after Branko Boskovic was dismissed in the 15th minute, goals in either half from Dragan Bogavac and Mihajlo Pjanovic earned Crvena Zvazda all three points.

Vojvodina take advantage
FK Vojvodina moved into third place with a 1-0 win at home to FK Zemun, with Sladjan Nikolic scoring the only goal of the game nine minutes before half-time. Meanwhile, fifth-placed FK Zeleznik were unexpectedly defeated 1-0 at FK Javor Ivanjica, with Milan Temenjara getting the winning goal midway through the first half.

Two for Boskovic
Elsewhere FK Hajduk Kula were 1-0 winners against FK Cukaricki, while FK Rad drew 1-1 with already-relegated FK Radnicki Niš. Ivan Boskovic scored twice as FK Sutjeska were 2-0 winners against FK Radnicki Obrenovac, while FK Sartid were 1-0 winners at FK Zeta thanks to a Marko Pantelic goal, and FK Obilic comfortably defeated bottom side FK Mogren 4-0.
