Adi Gotlieb came to Hapoel Tel Aviv’s rescue yet again on Monday night, scoring a late winner to secure a 1-0 victory at Hapoel Acre that took the team above the relegation zone.

The 23-year-old defender found the back of the net with his header in the 87th minute after a poor display by both teams, making the most of a mistake by Acre goalkeeper Danny Amos. Gotlieb also scored in the fourth minute of stoppage time three weeks ago to give Tel Aviv a 1-0 win over Hapoel Ra’anana.

Hapoel moved up to 10th place with the win, still only three points above the relegation zone, but also just four points back of fourth place.

“I played here for four years and I felt bad celebrating here,” said Gotlieb, who moved to Tel Aviv from Acre last summer. “This was a very important win for us and hopefully we can build on this.”
