PKO Ekstraklasa Matchweek 20: Warta Continue to Fight for their Lives

GRODZISK WIELKOPOLSKI, Poland. March 9 (PSN) – Warta Poznan’s current string of wins has increased their chances of avoided relegation after the twentieth matchweek of the 2020/2021 PKO Ekstraklasa season.

They claimed their eighth victory of the season and now the fourth in 2021 after defeating Wisla Plock 2:0 at home on Monday night. Piotr Tworek’s players struggled heavily at the beginning of their campaign and waited a long time for a win, or even to score a goal in the league. Next to Stal Mielec, they were prime candidates for relegation, but as the side from Poznan have shown thus far, they won’t go down without a fight – or perhaps won’t go down at all as things are currently looking. Since getting their first win in hand, Warta have been in solid form. Their match on Monday with Wisla only continued to put them in a stronger position away from the relegation zone. For instance, the Zieloni already had the lead by the third minute thanks to a quick goal from Makana Baku, who found space in the penalty box and surprised Wisla’s Krzysztof Kaminski with a flat strike from the left side. The Plock outfit were unable to answer in any way and Warta controlled most of the pitch, launching dangerous counterattacks at each opportunity. After the break, Baku once again returned to the goal scorer’s list and fired a brace to solidify Warta’s eighth win of the season.
