The main referee explains the postponing of Napredok - MetalurgThe main referee explains the postponing of Napredok - MetalurgInterrupted the Derby of Tetovo, snow postponed Napredok - Metalurg, while Turnovo beat Drita.

Of three games scheduled for 13.00 CET today only one ended. In Turnovo, the home team beat Drita with 2:1 recording its 9th seasonal win, assuring the second place on the table before the long winter break. Iljo Mitrov opened the score early in the 10th minute as the teams had troubles playing on a field covered with thin snow. In the 65th minute Gjorgji Mojsov missed a penalty as his shot went high over the goal, but 10 minutes later Zoran Baldovaliev eventually doubled the lead. Drita only made the last 5 minutes interesting after Mensur Idrizi scored.

The Derby of Tetovo between Teteks and Shkendija instead to be played at the Gradski stadium in Tetovo took place at the Gjorche Petrov stadium in Skopje. The game was mostly even without many chances. In the 86th minute, Teteks had a corner kick, the visitors kicked the ball out of the box, meanwhile a Shkendija player went to lie down injured, but again a Teteks player won it and gave a cross in the box and Dragan Nachevski scored with a header. As the home players went jubilant with their fans, the visitors went to protest to the referees thinking that the game should have been stopped because of the injured player. After it came clear that the referees allow the goal, the Shkendija players left the field and the game went abandoned. The FFM will have the last word but its obvious that Teteks will take the 3 points.

In Kichevo, the game Napredok - Metalurg didn't even started as the snow was too thick to allow a football match. It will probably be played tomorrow of on Tuesday.

Later today Vardar hosts Sileks at 16.00 CET in Skopje, while yesterday Rabotnichki beat Bregalnica and Renova draw Pelister.
