Live wire forward Joseph Monek has signed, sealed and delivered three points for the St Albans Saints.

A Monek-inspired Saints came from behind in a frenetic final five minutes to overrun Moreland Zebras 2-1 in the National Premier League 2 west at Churchill Reserve on Sunday.

The victory moves the Saints back up to third spot on the ladder, improving to seven points from four games.

It was looking for all money that
St Albans would end the match empty-handed when Moreland broke a 70-minute deadlock with a well worked set piece that ended with a headed goal from Jacob Williams.

But the Saints produced a spirited finish to reap all three points.

Monek had his fingerprints all over the Saints equaliser.

Not only did he draw a clear cut penalty after moving behind the defence and getting taken down from behind, he stepped up to convert from the spot with a powerful shot to the right of a diving goalkeeper.

Following the equaliser, St Albans maintained its attacking mentality and found a winner though a headed goal from Anthony Katiforis in second half stoppage time.

The assist from the free kick came from none other than Monek, who drew the free kick in the first place.
