Talismanic striker Lee Casciaro returned to club football after getting his second international goal all fired up to help us back into second place.
After Europa’s big win earlier in the weekend, it was imperative for us to keep the pressure on the league leaders. It all seemed to be going wrong after Lions’ 17th minute goal before Jean-Carlos Garcia stepped up to grab a lifeline.
Typically it was Ryan Casciaro followed by his brother Lee – whose looping header fooled the Cypriots late in the second half of Gibraltar’s World Cup qualifier – that got one apiece to turn the tide. Goals from the most famous footballing brothers on the Rock either side of half-time put us back in the driving seat, with Joseph Chipolina finishing off proceedings in the dying moments.
The win put us just a point behind Europa with a superior goal difference, giving the chances of retaining the league title a real boost.
