Unirea Urziceni stayed within two points of first place Dinamo Bucureşti with a 3-0 thumping of Gloria Bistriţa.
Dan Petrescu's side took the 1-0 lead over the Vampirii Albaştri five minutes before the half-hour when George Galamaz headed in Pablo Brandán's cross from six metres out. With thirteen minutes left the margin was doubled as Dacian Varga displayed tremendous touch as he volleyed a long diagonal cross in from seven metres out. With six minutes remaining the match was 3-0 as a corner from the left was poorly played by Bistriţa 'keeper Călin Albuţ and flicked towards Raul Rusescu, resulting in the promising young striker volleying the ball in.
Unirea Urziceni returns to action against Farul Constanţa next week with Gloria Bistriţa continuing its relegation fight against FC Braşov.
