Spartak Trnava back to winning ways after brawl punishment******
BRATISLAVA, Oct. 25 (Xinhua) -- FC Spartak Trnava, whose eight-game unbeaten streak was snapped by a punishment for a brawl involving their fans last week, bounced right back in the 12th round of Slovak football league with a 2-0 win over bottom side FK Pohronie on Sunday.
Trnava's previous game against visitors SK Slovan Bratislava had to be suspended as fans stormed the pitch after 15 minutes, and the game was forfeited 3-0 in favor of the visitors.
In addition to the forfeit, the disciplinary committee of the Slovak Football Association decreed that Trnava would have to play home games without fans. Definitive penalties for both teams will be decided in the coming weeks.
Trnava did not seem discouraged by their punishment and dispatched FK Pohronie with ease, scoring twice in the first half. Not counting the forfeited match, it was Trnava's fifth consecutive game without conceding a goal.
Bratislava remain top of the league with a three-point lead over Trnava after crushing newcomers MFK Tatran Liptovsky Mikulas 4-0 and stretching its winning streak to four. Enditem
