On-loan Chievo Verona striker Ali Sowe scored twice for relegation-threatened Vibonese who boosted their survival chances with a 2-1 home win over FC Catanzaro in the Italian third-tier.
Sowe, who is on a scoring form for Vibonese after scoring in the last game at Paganese, levelled the scores for the home side who fell behind after just eight minutes.

The former Gamtel forward levelled matters after just three minutes from the break before scoring the winner 15 minutes from time to put them five places below safety.
Vibonese will be looking on to their star player when they visit Taranto on Sunday and will hope a win will bring them closer to safety with just two matches to go.

Elsewhere in the Italian second-tier, forward Lamin Jallow returned from injury to help Trapani stay off the relegation place with a 1-0 hard fought win over bottom club Pisa.
Jallow, who was brought on in the 80th minute, needed just 10 minutes to become the home side’s hero as he tapped home a scramble to send the home fans jubilating.
