The second round of the 2016/17 championship got off to a flying start with a 7-0 thrashing of FC Hellas. Tempers flared on this unseasonably hot April Saturday afternoon resulting in many yellow cards and one red card for Hellas.
While the three points and improved goal difference were something to cheer, the hit to our Fair Play points total was less welcome – ties in the league are decided by these points and not goal difference.
The players have a month’s break before the next game, at home to Bosna.
