Ekstraklasa Week SixBy: Marcus | September 20th, 2010
Wisla Kraków 2-2 Korona Kielce
First game for Robert Maaskant at the new home stadium and the Dutchman showed some of the tactical nous which arguably makes him the most adept manager in the league. His team was structured well, Cezary Wilk had a good game against his former club and for much of the game Korona danger-man, Niedzielan, looked absent. However, the team still suffers from a relatively poor defence and Korona did well to take their chances when they came.
Lechia Gdańsk 1-0 Cracovia
An unconvincing performance by the home side against the worst team in the league. Lechia fans are still angry and protesting but Buval scoring on his début will be a sight for sore eyes. Meanwhile Cracovia are still yet to record a single point and a defeat at home next week would surely mean a goodbye to Rafal Ulatowski.
Górnik Zabrze 1-0 GKS Bełchatów
A disappointing defeat for GKS who have made a good start to the season. The game turned into a rather cagey affair with neither team really creating much and Gornik did well to force their opponents to play a long ball game which didn’t suit them. Eventually it was the newly promoted side who took advantage and a good corner was converted by Zahorski in the 72nd minute.
Widzew Łódź 5-2 Śląsk Wrocław
An ebullient performance by Robak and Šernas who shared the five goals of the home side while Śląsk continue to struggle down in 15th with only four points from their six games thus far.
Zagłębie Lubin 2-1 Legia Warszawa
Two contrasting ways on how to run a football club were on show in this match. The home side looked confident after a meeting was held with the team and the board which seems to have cleared the air. Meanwhile for Legia only five players remained in the starting lineup from last week after much of the team was either dropped or fined and to a great extent this came out in the performance.
Polonia Bytom 1-0 Ruch Chorzów
Bit of a scrappy game but Polonia eventually got the goal they perhaps deserved and held on for the three points.
Arka Gdynia 1-0 Jagiellonia Białystok
A surprising result but one which was well deserved by Arka. Jagiellonia looked a bit lost away from home and on the artificial pitch but it still took an effective performance by the home side to fully exploit it.
Lech Poznan —- Polonia Warszawa
The most exciting fixture of the round will be played on Wednesday and with any luck there will be a full match report up here that very evening.
