Hungary round-up: Ferencváros falter at home

Ferencvárosi TC's championship dreams are in jeopardy after they lost 1-0 to Debreceni VSC.

Ferencvárosi TC's championship dreams are in jeopardy after they lost 1-0 today.

Late own goal
Debreceni VSC pulled off a surprise result at the Üllói út stadium and to add to the home side's misery, it was a Ferencváros player who scored the only goal of the game. Defender Zoltán Balog accidentally headed into Lajos Szücs' goal after he misjudged a cross from Debrecen striker Zsombor Kerekes.

Sopron in command
Second-placed Zalaegerszegi TE also had a grim afternoon as they lost to two early goals at MFC Sopron. Striker István Sira opened the scoring in the 13th minute, beating the goalkeeper from József Somogyi's quick free-kick, and the visitors barely had time to regain their composure before Mihály Tóth scored the second six minutes later.
