Macedonian First League – Round 24

Shkendija players celebrate, photo: defeated Teteks in the Tetovo derby as no home team celebrated a victory in the 24th round of league play.

Shkendija won 0:2 against Teteks in the city derby, although the winning side played with 10 men for 80 minutes after midfielder Miroslav Jovanoski was sent off in the 10th minute.  Nevertheless, with two goals scored by Kemal Alomerovikj in the 41st and 57th minute, Shkendija snatched three points and kept up in the race for second place with Metalurg.  Metalurg, meanwhile, finally celebrated a victory after a recent slump in which they went three games without a win.  Ohrid was Metalurg’s victim as the Skopje based club won 1:4.  Dragan Nachevski and Cvetan Churlinov scored one goal apiece, while Igor Kralevski converted two penalty kicks in the second half to hand Metalurg the comfortable win.  For Ohrid, captain Naum Djaleski managed to only score a consolation goal in the 72nd minute.

Vardar was held to a goalless draw in Kichevo against Napredok, while Sileks was convincing against last placed 11 Oktomvri who look very much relegated at this point.  Sileks played with an extra player for the majority of the game after an 11 Oktomvri player received a red card in the 18th minute.  Gjorgji Zarevski scored two goals for Sileks, with the third goal coming from Aleksandar Temelkov on a converted spot kick.  11 Oktomvri’s debutant Marjan Radeski reduced the deficit to 1:3 in the 82nd minute to complete the scoreline.

Horizont Turnovo battled but ultimately suffered a narrow home loss against Renova at the Kukush Stadium.  Ardžent Gafuri’s lone goal in the 40th minute brought Renova the three points.
