Olympiacos Volou move into top three

Olympiacos Volou edged into third place in the Super League as they ushered Panserriakos a step closer to the drop tonight.

Krisztian Nemeth, Mario Breska and substitute Xavier Tomas earned the hosts a 3-0 win which moves them a point ahead of AEK Athens, who play PAOK Salonika tomorrow, and leaves Panserriakos rooted to the bottom of the table.

They trail nearest rivals Larissa by three points and are five adrift of even securing a relegation play-off, seemingly the best they can hope for given the nine-point gap to 13th-placed Panionios.

Iraklis and Xanthi both lifted themselves seven points clear of trouble with late winners today. Constantin Iacob, an 83rd-minute substitute, struck three minutes from time to earn Iraklis a 1-0 win at Aris Salonika while Spiros Vallas' 93rd-minute goal saw Xanthi beat nine-man Kerkyra 2-1 at home.

Olubayo Adefemi had given the hosts a first-half lead before Denis Epstein equalised from the penalty spot for Kerkyra, who had both Tassos Venetis and Elias Ioannou sent off shortly before the winning goal.
