Report

Last pre-season friendly at the end of what had been a miserable summer for the Partisans, without a single friendly win. Return of Christos and Garrett at centre-back, along with Shaz finally giving us an outlet up front. Nevertheless, Smichov netted first and we went into the break a goal down. Half Time: Partisan 0 - 1 Smichov In the second half Rad made his full return from injury. JJ moved out to left back, Filip into centre-mid and Colin took a breather. The changes were decisive as a corner from Filip was headed in by Christos for the equalizer. Next to go off was Banjo with Colin returning to the fray and marking his return with a corner onto Khyzer's head that the fullback put into the net. 2-1 to Partisan and the comeback was complete. There was still almost time to shoot ourselves in the foot as Filip was red-carded (the third Partisan sent off in two games) and another Partisan had to limp off injured. Thankfully the ref treated the match as the friendly exercise it was and let Filip back on, enabling us to see out the win with 11 men on the pitch. A morale-booster a week before resumption of the Prague league.
