Torino 1-0 Reggina

Torino extended their lead at the top of the Serie B table to four points as they held on to beat Reggina 1-0 on Wednesday afternoon.

The original match was abandoned almost three weeks ago at Half Time with Torino leading 1-0 thanks to Kamil Glik's header, therefore only the Second Half needed to be played. Toro lined up in an attacking formation with three genuine strikers - Mirco Antenucci, Rolando Bianchi and Riccardo Meggiorini leading the line.

The home side nearly extended their lead in the early stages of the half, but both Mirco Antenucci and Rolando Bianchi were denied by away keeper Emanuele Belardi. At the other end, Reggina had a half chance to deny Torino the three points, but Gabriele Angella's looping header went harmlessly wide.

In the end, Torino seemed happy with holding on to their advantage from the First Half that was played on April 6th, and they managed to do that with relative ease. Although Toro currently have a four point advantage over nearest rivals Hellas Verona, that could change on Friday when Padova seek to get a 3-0 victory that was awarded to Toro earlier in the season overturned. If Padova are successful, then Torino's advantage would just be a point, meaning that Saturday's home match against Crotone would be even more significant.

Forza Torino
