Jindřišek's penalty kick brings 3 points home

The first Moravian team was awaiting the Bohemians this season. The Kangaroos left already on Friday to play against Zlín on Saturday evening.

There had to be two changes in a starting line up made by Jozef Weber. David Bartek got a red card in the last match and could not attend today’s match and Vyhnal got injured. Roman Potočný and debutant in a starting line up Petr Nerad took their places.

The blue-yellows had more of a possession but Bohemians had the sides of the pitch and were also dangerous. The first wing chance came in tenth minute when Potočný offered a ball to Kalina, who missed the target. Zlín reacted immediately with few shots but all of them were off the target or ended in hands of Radek Sňozík.

The best looking chance of the first half came in 40th minute. Five fast passes of Zlín brought the team to the penalty area but Kroča overshot the goal.

The second half was the absolute opposite of the first half. Chances came on both sides. Everything started with a home player Kubica, who shot hard but wide. On the other side of the pitch, it was Jindřišek who found Jirouš but Jirouš’s shot hit the crossbar from the penalty spot. Immediately after that, Nerad found Moravec, who got through the defenders but didn’t hit the goal.

Polách after a throw in reached the ball and lobbed the goalkeeper but missed the target. Then it was Jugas who got some attention. He tackled Nerad twice in one minute, got two yellow cards and was sent off. The Kangaroos were awarded 20 minutes of a power play.

Bohemians had plenty of chances, but the header of Šmíd and the shot from Kalina were off the target.
The resolution of the match came three minutes to time. Kalina went to the penalty area, Polách tackled him, Kalina fell down and referee blew the whistle, pointing at the penalty spot. Jindřišek was sure and scored.

Zlín tried to put everything to the attack but the only chance which came till the end of the match was from Bohemians. Rada hit the crossbar, Bálek, just a minute later hit the post. Bohemians won and bringing 3 points home.
