The game was played in difficult conditions as dense fog made it hard to see from one end of the pitch to the other.

But former Manchester City striker Bojinov struck with just six minutes remaining to lift the pressure on Parma boss Pasquale Marino and bring Samp's seven-match unbeaten run to an end.

Despite some good early pressure from Parma, it was Vladimir Koman who had the first chance of the game in the 24th minute when he shot over the crossbar after Guido Marilungo had headed the ball down to him.

Antonio Candreva had Parma's best chance of the first half in the 43rd minute when his header from 15 yards was pushed around the post by Giancarlo Curci.

It was the same story early in the second half with the hosts taking the game to their opponents, who then had the first real opportunity.

Rewarded

Giampaolo Pazzini rattled the underside of the crossbar with a free-kick and the ball bounced out to Guido Marilungo, who was unable to head it either side of Antonio Mirante.

Pazzini was claiming a penalty in the 68th minute when Gabriel Paletta went in hard on him as he shot from an angle, but the referee waved play on.

Parma kept up the pressure and were rewarded in the 84th minute.

Christian Zaccardo played a reverse pass from the edge of the area into the path of Bojinov, who appeared to be in an offside position, but the flag stayed down as he picked his spot in the far corner.

It was Parma's first goal in more than 400 minutes and one which was worth three points to save Marino's job.
