Not an easy game for AEK, as we fell behind three times throughout. Luckily our players managed to show some determination to come back from behind each time, but the result still is not the most encouraging when we're just about to enter the top division once again.

To be fair, Dellas did go with a lineup consisting mostly of bench players for the second game in a row so I guess there's only so much we can tell from the result and performance.
