It may have taken 10 matches, but Bnei Sakhnin finally claimed its first win of the Premier League season on Monday night, defeating Hapoel Petah Tikva 1-0 at Winter Stadium.

Halftime substitute Nastja Ceh scored the only goal of the match in the 49th minute, giving coach Slobodan Drapic his first win at the club after becoming Sakhnin’s third coach of the season at the end of September.

"We are not interested in playing beautiful soccer at the moment. We are only interested in picking up points,” said Drapic, whose team had scored just a single goal in its previous five matches.

“We still need to pick up some more points so that we can regain our confidence. If we collect a few more points hopefully we will be able to play beautiful soccer later in the season.”

After 10 matches, Hapoel Ramat Gan finally lost its patience on Monday morning, firing coach Shlomi Dora.

Ramat Gan started the season in the worst possible situation after being deducted four points by the IFA’s High Court for last year’s financial irregularities.

Dora had to somehow build a squad with a minuscule budget, but after picking up a respectable five points from its first four matches of the season, Ramat Gan lost its last six encounters, scoring just one goal in that period in Saturday’s 3-1 defeat to Maccabi Haifa.

Dora will be replaced by Tzvika Tzemach, who coached Hapoel Ra’anana at the end of last season.
