Violets Take 303rd Vienna Derby


========================================================

A goal on either side of the halftime whistle by 23-year-old winger ALEXANDER GORGON gave home-standing FK AUSTRIA VIENNA a deserved 2-0 triumph over visiting intra-city arch-rival SK RAPID VIENNA at the old Franz Horr Stadion in the 303rd installment of the always-entertaining WIENER DERBY.

The important win allowed trainer PETER STOEGER’s side to take sole possession of second place in the Austria Bundesliga standings just one point behind defending champion Red Bull Salzburg. FK Austria Vienna now sport twenty-six points from twelve matches and boast a second consecutive triumph over die Gruen-Weissen this term in what is certainly one of Europe’s most intriguing metropolitan rivalries. Meanwhile, SK Rapid Vienna fell to third in the table trailing their historical adversary by three points.

The Green-Whites are now winless in the last seven matches with the Violets.

========================================================

========================================================
Czech Republic international TOMAS JUN, the 29-year-old winger who scored four goals in each of the last two Bundesliga seasons for FK Austria Vienna, has tallied three times in a dozen Austrian top flight matches already this term; Jun netted nine goals in his first season for die Veilchen after transferring from SC Rheindorf Altach in the summer of 2009.
