Red Star Republic Report:

" Red Star finally turned around a run of bad results, but not before this one looked like it was going to continue their autumn malaise. Bathelona took a first half lead without dominating and doubled their lead around 70 minutes to look increasingly like the probable winners. Red Star's manager pulled a master stroke by immediately substituting arguably the team's most influential player (though admittedly you'd have to be very drunk or deluded to attempt arguing that). The switch reaped immediate rewards with Pat getting on the end of Waj's cross to reduce the deficit. Dunc then connected first time with an incisive pass to the edge of the area to score a wonder goal in off the post. At 2-2 both teams were in shock, but it was Red Star who snatched a third with a fine sliding finish from Pat from Dunc's left wing cross. Bathelona rallied in Fergie time (santa get that ref a new watch) with a late flurry of corners, but Red Star held out to take three very welcome points. Great game, great spirit."
