BRATISLAVA, Dec. 20 (Xinhua) -- Slovan Bratislava will enter the winter break with a four-point lead on top of the Slovak Fortuna Liga standings after a 1-1 draw against MSK Zilina on Sunday.

On 73 minutes, Adam Kopas' long pass found Benson Anang, who exchanged the ball with substitute Jakub Paur and then struck home to level the game at 1-1.

The battle for third place between FC DAC 1904 Dunajska Streda and MFK Ruzomberok saw no winner and no goals scored, while FK Senica beat AS Trencin 1-0 to notch up its third win in a row, which put it back among the top half of the league.

FC Spartak Trnava edged SKF Sered 1-0, MFK Zemplin Michalovce nipped a 1-0 victory against FC ViOn Zlate Moravce, and FK Pohronie drew MFK Tatran Liptovsky Mikulas 2-2.
