Poli Iaşi play Pandurii Târgu Jiu to draw

Fighting to avoid relegation Poli Iaşi held off mid-table side Pandurii Târgu Jiu for an important point, playing to a 1-1 draw.

Romanian international Andrei Cristea gave Iaşi the lead only twenty seconds into into the match as he broke up a lazy pass and drove the ball from a few metres beyond the area. Two minutes before the hour Florin Stîngă squared the match up as he headed a corner in from the edge of the six yard box.

Poli Iaşi head into relegation battle against Gaz Metan Mediaş on Saturday that could decide either sides fate whilst Pandurii Târgu Jiu faces the Vampirii Albaştri of Bistriţa.
