Winful Cobbinah has scored his third goal for KF Tirana

Ghanaian midfielder Winful Kwaku Cobbinah on Sunday scored in KF Tirana’s 3-1 away win over Laci in their penultimate fixture in the Albania Super League.

KF Tirana’s stay in the league next season was dependent on this game but their victory last Sunday ensured that they leapfrog out of the relegation Zone as they are now placed seventh with 46 points.

The former Accra Hearts Oak talisman doubled the lead for Tirana on the 36th minute after Bedri Greca had scored the first goal 6 minutes into the game.

Shatubina pulled one back for Laci to make it 2-1 but Edon Hasani scored the third goal for the visitors on the 84th minute with an assist from Cobbinah.

Last Sunday's goal was Cobbinah’s third for the Albanian side after having scored twice in previous matches.

The 27-year-old midfielder will be hoping to end the season in grand style when they play their last game against Flamurtari on Thursday.

Hearts of Oak reached a contractual agreement with the Albanian side for the transfer of their enterprising attacking midfielder in July, 2018.
