Napredok recorded an important three points with a road victory over Ohrid.  The visitors played defensively for the majority of the game but managed to open the scoring in the 13th minute through Blagojche Glavevski.  Although Napredok played with ten men since the 68th minute after Bobi Veljanoski was shown a red card, they managed to double their lead with Zharko Simjanoski’s goal in the 72nd minute.  In injury time, Ohrid could only score a consolation goal to reduce the deficit.

Sileks defeated Bregalnica Shtip 2:1 thanks to a brace by attacker Angel Nacev.  Sileks took the initial lead in the 14th minute before Bregalnica striker Genc Hyseni leveled the score eight minutes later.  After only three minutes into the second half, Nacev scored his second goal of the game to help Sileks become the new fourth placed team on the table.
