Siena come from a goal down to edge Palermo in a big basement battle in Serie A this afternoon.

Siena have recovered from a goal down to win this afternoon's relegation battle against Palermo.

Both sides were five points from safety ahead of the match, but it was the home side who went ahead just before the break.

Siena failed to deal with a curling corner from Fabrizio Miccoli, and after a deflection saw Cristian Terlizzi's attempted clearance cannoned off the post Anselmo was on hand to net from close range.

Palermo's lead survived for just six minutes as Siena equalised through Innocent Emeghara, who took advantage of some slack marking to score his fifth goal in six matches.

The visitors seized the initiative and got a vital winner 20 minutes before full time from the penalty spot.

Steven Von Bergen tripped Emeghara inside the penalty area and Alessandro Rosina converted coolly to make the score 2-1.

Palermo pressed for an equaliser in the closing stages and went agonisngly close when Josip Ilicic had his free kick tipped onto the crossbar.

Second-half substitute Nelson also hit the woodwork in stoppage time but Siena held on to earn three precious points.
