Despite once more failing to impress, Beitar Jerusalem closed within just four points of the top of the Premier League standings on Saturday night, claiming a 1-0 victory over rock-bottom Maccabi Netanya at Teddy Stadium.

Dusan Matovic scored the only goal of the match in the 33rd minute and Beitar held on for its eighth win from the past 11 games.

“Sometimes you just have to win and forget about the way you played,” said Beitar coach Slobodan Drapic.

League leaders Maccabi Tel Aviv and Hapoel Beersheba clash at Bloomfield Stadium on Monday.
