Sheriff defeated Petrocub 2-0 in the last match of the 16th stage of the National Football Division. The score was opened by Thill in the 31st minute as a result of a penalty kick awarded for an alleged foul by Efros on Dulanto. Khalid set the final scoreline in the last minute of the game, IPN reports.
“The absence of Ambros was felt. We would have had a much more creative game in the offense,” said the coach of Petrocub Lilian Popescu.
“We expected it will be a hard game. I’m satisfied with the performance of my team, especially during the first part of the match,” said Sheriff manager Yuri Vernydub.
Elsewhere, Sfîntul Gheorghe beat Dinamo-Auto 1-0 and climbed to the fourth spot in the rankings. Milsami and Petrocub lead with 34 points, being followed by Sheriff with 31 points. But the team from Tiraspol played by three matches fewer.
