DAVID SMITH - Monday, August 18, 2014
Shawn Barry and Linz recouped from their previous defeat with a shut-out win over SV Horn while Conor O'Brien did not yet feature for his new team Wiener Neustadt in their tough loss to Grödig.

SV Horn 0 - 2 LASK Linz

Shawn Barry helped the LASK Linz post their third shut-out in six games on Friday, as a win at SV Horn kept them pressure the top of the Austrian Erste Liga standings.

Linz went ahead in the 22nd minute when Philip Petermann did a poor job controlling a header from Markus Blutsch, and Radovan Vujanovic was able to put away the loose ball with a somewhat lucky shot off his shin.

Horn looked increasingly dangerous as the second half wore on, but their hopes for any last-second breakthrough were dashed four minutes from time when Vujanovic and Daniel Kogler linked up on a counter, with Kogler putting away the final shot for the 2-0 win.

The result leaves Linz level with Liefering and Mattersburg atop the division on 13 points, however with the latter holding a slight edge due to having played one less game.

Linz will be back in action in Friday when they take on Liefering in clash for Eerste Liga superiority.

Notes

Conor O'Brien did not play for his new team SC Wiener Neustadt on Saturday as a 3-0 loss at SV Grödig kept the team at the bottom of the Austrian Bundesliga standings. He will hope to have his debut for the team on Saturday when they host FC Admira Wacker.

Keith Cardona did not make the bench for FC Liefering on Friday for their 3-2 home win over Kapfenberger SV. Liefering have a quick turnaround, with a visit to SKN St. Pölting on Monday.
