Chievo with victory at Fiorentina
Chievo ensured their Serie A status for another season with an impressive victory on the road at Fiorentina.

Sergio Pellissier and Gennaro Sardo struck second-half goals for the Flying Donkeys, who moved 10 points clear of danger with three games remaining.

Defeat for La Viola all but ends their bid for European football next season, with the club now eight points off the final European berth after their fourth game without a win.

Fiorentina had their chances in the match, however, and the outcome could have been different had Juan Vargas not seen his 51st-minute penalty saved by Stefano Sorrentino.

The hosts will also point to a nightmare run of injuries in the opening period which no doubt served to put the team out of its stride and disrupt the pre-match plans of coach Cesare Prandelli.

First full-back Felipe was forced from the action in the 10th minute to be replaced by Gianluca Comotto, then eight minutes later centre-half Alessandro Gamberini needed to be replaced, with Cesare Natali entering the fray.

Chievo threatened to open the scoring as early as the 13th minute and would have done so but for some good work by home goalkeeper Sebastien Frey.

First Frey did well to push away a Michele Marcolini header, then seconds later reacted well to save a close-range effort from Pellissier.

Vargas let fly with a long-range effort for the hosts after 36 minutes while moments later Fiorentina's woes were compounded when substitute Comotto picked up an injury himself and had to be replaced by Adem Ljajic.

And two minutes later Ljajic was straight into the thick off the action as he attempted a shot on the run that narrowly missed the target.

Sorrentino had to be on his toes early in the second period to deny Lorenzo De Silvestri's ambitious left-footed effort from distance, the visiting goalkeeper doing well to tip the ball around the post.

The hosts spurned a glorious chance to go ahead six minutes into the half after Chievo defender Santiago Morero fouled Alberto Gilardino in the area.

Vargas stepped up to take the resulting spot-kick but Sorrentino guessed right to make a good save.

Fiorentina's failure to convert their opportunity was duly punished just three minutes later when Bojan Jokic led a counter-attack and played the ball through for Pellissier who controlled the ball before sending an angled drive beyond Frey and into the far corner.

Fiorentina came close to pulling level after 65 minutes when Vargas' free-kick on the left was met by a firm close-range header by Natali but Sorrentino was again in the right place to make the block.

Chievo made sure of the win that preserves their top-flight status 15 minutes from time.

Sardo was both architect and executioner, first beating Natali and then coolly slotting past Frey to clinch three important points.
