St.Panteleimon FC have moved top of the Middlesex County Football League Premier Division as they sealed a 3-1 win against Brentham.
Goals from Noyan Tajbakhsh, Ayub Albadri and Ryan Molloy sealed the three points for the Saints and keep them unbeaten after four games into the new season.
Despite going into the three games unbeaten in the league they got off to a slow start and after just 35 minutes the hosts took the lead.
After the half-time break the visitors came out strong and it took only 12 minutes after the re-start for them to level the score.
Tajbakhsh drove into the penalty area and from an acute angle lobbed the goalkeeper with an exquisitely placed chip that hit the back of net.
In the 78th minute Saints grabbed the lead thanks to a header from Albadri before Molloy struck the ball into the net in the dying stages to seal the 3-1 victory.
