Slovenia round-up: Koper close on Primorje

NK Koper won 1-0 win against NK Publikum on Saturday to move to within a point of top spot.

NK Koper made a triumphant start to the second half of the Slovenian season with a 1-0 win against NK Publikum on Saturday.

One point away
Winter signing Patrick Ipavec scored the game's only goal after 39 minutes to move Branko Oblak's Koper to within one point of league leaders NK Primorje. Having already drawn 0-0 earlier in the season, there was little to separate the two sides at the Bonifika stadium.

Pressure on Primorje
Second-placed Koper are now four points clear of third-placed NK Maribor who travel to NK Olimpija Ljubljana for their first competitive game of 2002 on Sunday. Primorje, meanwhile, travel to second-from bottom NK Zivila Triglav as they aim to keep Koper at arm's length.
