In what was our most disappointing performance of the season so far, we fell to a late goal away to Bnei Yehud on Friday afternoon, ending a 3-game unbeaten streak.
Head Coach David Pernitchi opted for a back 5 to start things off but the change in formation never seemed to work on the narrow Yehud pitch and we were under pressure from the get-go.
Although keeper Leo Gewertz was not tested in the first half, we failed to advantage of the game and barely made any clear cur chances ourselves in the opening 45 minutes.
At halftime, we moved back to our regular 4-2-3-1 formation with Ron Sharifi and Allan Camarov coming off the bench. The game most certainly opened up with both teams daring to try and earn the victory.
A Yehud attack down their left side caught us out of position and with gaping holes in the back, we were punished as the home side scored the opening goal of the encounter, much to the delight of the numerous local fans.
Yet, we did manage to equalise as we amped up the pressure. A messy free-kick somehow found its way to the Yehud back post, where Andy Gabay was on hand to bundle the ball home.
Calming ourselves down after the equaliser would have opened the possibility to take all three points but the moment got the better of us, leading to a disastrous final five minutes.
First, Yehud regained the lead when a free-kick was headed home by an unmarked player and then Allan Camarov saw a straight red card for kicking out at an opponent in frustration.
A hugely disappointing result and performance but we remain in the fight to finish in the top 3 and qualify for play-offs, with a number of teams all fighting it out in the competitive Liga Gimmel Group B.
