Vukovar '91 managed to keep their net untouched wich was not so difficult because Rijekas attackers were (again) poor. It is very strange then than Antony Milicic didn't play untill 85 minute because he proved himself against Istra and he deserves to play in the first team. Final score: Vukovar '91 - Rijeka 0:0

Rijeka is back on the winning streak. Istra is destroyred in a game that could finish even worse for Istra if Rijeka's forwards were more pecise. But the final score was RIJEKA - ISTRA 4:1

Rijeka's last line didn't play so good ( Milinovic banned ), but Agic, Balaban and Matulovic played excelent especialy Antony Milicic, the new signing this season.
On this match Zoran Krecak was going to be linesman but he didn't have guts to come back to the scene of crime.
Mijatovic back next week after three months injury !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rijeka played this weeks high scoring friendly match against a local club. This result gives good confidance to players before the match against Istra in the championship this week.
Cibalia has beaten Rijeka in a very strange match. The refere has awarded Cibalia three penalties (wich they scored) and he has showed Rijeka's capitan Damir Milinovic a red card. So against "fourteen" players Rijeka didn't have a chance especialy with very poor preformance by its attackers Sztipanovics and Hasancic. They missed so many chances that it could have bean 10:3 for Rijeka but only Bosko Balaban managed to score a late goal.
Matulovic was again one of the best Rijeka's players on the pitch.
Rijeka has advanced to 1/8 finals of National cup by beating NK Radnik from Ivanic Grad by 2 to 1. Sztipanovics and Hasancic scored for Rijeka. Next game Rijeka will play against Nehaj from Senj.
In an exciting game Rijeka beat Sibenik 2:0. Rijeka started with an early header from Skocibusic in 9th minute. In 79th minute Brajkovic only confirmed Rijeka's win. Rijeka played this game without four standard defenders (Milinovic, Cacic, Tomisic and Viskovic) but their replacments played excelent especialy Skocibusic and Matulovic who played like never before.
