A stoppage-time goal handed Gordan Petric a winning debut in charge of Partizan Belgrade as they defeated Mladost 1-0 in the Serbian championship.
Petric took over from Ilija Stolica after the latter parted ways with Partizan following their Europa League exit at the hands of AEK Larnaca of Cyprus.
For the game against Mladost, coach Petric deployed a 4-3-3 side with Fousseni Diabate, Ricardo Gomes and Mihajlo Petkovic forming the attacking trio.
The winning goal, though, arrived thanks to central defender Svetozar Markovic who guided a cross from the right-hand side into the net.
Opposing Partizan on the field was former Birkirkara player Srdjan Dimitrov who is currently on the books of Mladost.
After five league games, Partizan have eight points after two wins and two draws.
They host Ħamrun Spartans on Thursday in the UEFA Europa Conference League play-offs first leg.
