Fight for top flight survival yet to be decided

Hapoel Petah Tikva remained alive in the battle against relegation for at least another 48 hours on Saturday, while Hapoel Haifa took a significant step towards survival after another dramatic day of action in the bottom half of the Premier League standings.

Any result but a win would have sent Petah Tikva to the National League with one match still to play, but the 4-2 victory at Ashdod SC maintained the team’s lingering hope of remaining in the top flight while handing Ashdod’s chances a huge blow.

Despite the victory, Petah Tikva could find itself demoted as soon as Monday should Hapoel Acre avoid defeat against Maccabi Netanya.
