Punjab fight back to win an eight-goal thriller against Belgrade

Punjab United came from behind to beat Belgrade in an eight-goal thriller in Wolverhampton & District Sunday League Division Two.

Sachin Bargota and Bartosz Prus had just about managed to keep Belgrade in check as Punjab trailed 3-2 at the interval.

However, after half-time they took control and turned the game around through Devante Shearer’s brace before Bargota grabbed his own second to seal a 5-3 success.

That was the same scoreline KT Rangers won by at DC Santos, while Charlie Leadon grabbed the only goal of the game as leaders Tipton Town edged out Barley Mow.

Warstones Wanderers overcame Royal 7-0 in Division One.

Wolverhampton Sports GNST went top of Division Three as they took advantage of Jungle Juice’s 5-2 defeat to Minerva by beating Wolverhampton Athletic 4-2. Arun Sanghera (two), Dylan Sanghera and James McKerdy were on target for GNST, with Jakes Short and Tom Atken replying for Athletic.

In a tightly-contested Division Four, three points separate everybody in the table.
