Created on 23 Oct., 2012 2:46 PM GMT

Polish Ekstraklasa leaders Legia Warsaw have extended their unbeaten start to the season with a 3-0 win away to mid-table Pogon Szczecin.

Goals from Serbian veteran Danijel Ljuboja and Polish youngster Jakub Kosecki put the team from the capital two goals up inside the first 21 minutes on Monday.

Szczecin lost both Maciej Dabrowki and Hernani to red cards after half-time before Ljuboja's second goal in the 86th minute clinched the victory.

Legia Warsaw moved back above Lech Poznan with their fifth win of the season, which has taken them to 18 points.

Poznan are on 17 points after their 1-0 victory on the road at Zaglebie Lubin.

Reigning champions Slask Wroclaw also won in the latest round of the Ekstraklasa, recovering from a two-goal deficit away to Lechia Gdansk to triumph 3-2.

A penalty to Abdou Razak Traore put the home side ahead just before half-time and the Burkino Faso midfielder extended Gdansk's lead five minutes after the break.

But a brace from Sebastian Mila and a header from Rok Elsner in the space of 10 minutes gave Slask Wroclaw victory.

Slask Wroclaw are fifth, two points off the top of the table, while Lechia Gdansk have fallen to eighth.
