Lanus ended their horror seven-game winless run with a 1-0 home win over Atletico Rafaela in the Argentinian Clausura on Monday.

Mario Regueiro scored the winning goal from the penalty spot after 37 minutes to lift Lanus off the foot of the table.

The Buenos Aires club had taken just a single point from their past seven games, five of which were 1-0 defeats, to leave them in early-season trouble.
