Sparta still top

Sparta Prague and Banik Ostrava remain level at the top of the Gambrinus Liga after both sides were held to draws today. Sparta were held to a 2-2 draw at Liberec after twice coming from behind.

Lovre Vulin netted after eight minutes and Petr Papousek after 76 for Liberec, but Juraj Kucka equalised on each occasion. Banik were on course to take the sole lead at the top of the table before Mlada Boleslav netted a stoppage-time leveller to earn a 2-2 draw. A Fernando Neves penalty put Banik 2-1 ahead, after Jan Chramosta had cancelled out Tomas Micola's opener for the hosts.

But substitute Ivo Taborsky netted a 90th minute leveller to earn Mlada Boleslav a point. Jablonec are a point behind Sparta and Banik after a 3-0 win at Slavia Prague.

Tomas Pekhart, Marek Jarolim and David Lafata were on target in the victory. Fourth-placed Teplice conceded ground and are three points behind Jablonec after a 1-1 draw with Olomouc.

Jan Navratil put Olomouc in front but Stepan Vachousek equalised from the penalty spot before half-time. At the foot of the table, Kladno are four points adrift of safety after drawing 0-0 at Bohemians 1905.

Kladno finished the match with 10 men after the dismissal of David Zoubek for two bookable offences. Elsewhere, bottom club Bohemians Prague, who have been relegated and docked 20 points for refusing to play Bohemians 1905, drew 2-2 with Plzen. Brno beat Ceske Budejovice 3-1 and Slovacko claimed a 2-1 win over Pribram.
