Dušan Kosić scores six tries in Domžale’s first win as coach: Aluminij lead but fall after a late turnaround
Although it seemed that Domžale were heading for their fifth defeat under the leadership of Dušan Kosić, the latter still came through with his first victory as coach of the yellow family. Both Dušan Kosić and Robert Pevnik in the opening match of the ninth round of the Telemach First League came under a lot of pressure, and after the match, which was played at Kamniški Bistrica, the coach of Alumini is in a much worse position. The Kidrians led until the last quarter of the game, but then the hosts scored two quick goals to win the game.
Aluminij took the lead after half an hour of play, when young Gambian striker Bamba Susso made his debut in a red jersey. The latter decided to take a long-range shot, the ball grazed one of the home players and changed the direction of the flight just enough for Gašper Tratnik to fall short. Domžale squandered several good chances in the first half, with Dušan Kosić grabbing his head after a missed opportunity by Dario Kolobarić and the visiting goalkeeper Samo Pridgar also making him desperate. The youngster made a few good defences and then became a great tragedy at the end of the game.
If Pridgar was in 79th minute, after a great diagonal shot by Danijel Šturm, already without strenght, it was completely different five minutes later. Then Filip Stuparević, a newcomer in Domžale’s ranks, shot from distance. His shot wasn’t too dangerous, but Pridgar still got the ball out of his hands. Mario Krstovski took advantage of this and slid the rebound into the Aluminija net for Domžale’s first win on 22 July this year. It should be added that just before Domžale’s first goal, Aluminij, through Gašper Jovan, shook the home club’s goalpost. If the net had crashed then… Well, then it would probably have ended differently. But it didn’t… And the question of what is in store for Robert Pevnik after his fifth consecutive defeat…
