Frosinone’s 2-1 win over Nuova Cosenza on Saturday, was hard fought at Stadio San Vito. NUO were hoping to get something from this game after losing their last match 5-0 to SPAL while FRO were coming from consecutive wins against SSC Bari and Venezia. NUO are now in 16th place on the table and have 11 points while FRO sit in 1st with 24 points after 11 matches.

NUO started the first half well, when Merola gave them the lead in the 20th minute. However, their celebrations were kept brief, as Moro equalised for FRO on the 28 minute mark, to take a 1-1 lead into half time.

FRO continued to pile on the pressure in the second period and were rewarded, when Mulattieri found the net, 70 minutes in. The match ended with a 2-1 victory for the visitors.

Substitutions for NUO included Vallocchia, D’urso, Massimo Zilli, Caló and Butic for Brescianini, Kornvig, Larrivey, Voca and Brignola, respectively. FRO brought on Riccardo Ciervo, Giuseppe Caso, Kone, Sampirisi and Lulić, to replace Garritano, Moro, Rohden, Riccardo Ciervo and Kone.

There were bookings for Merola, Michael Venturi and Caló from NUO. For FRO, Ravanelli, Lucioni and Mazzitelli saw yellow.

NUO will next play Pisa away, with FRO facing Perugia at home.
