Beitar back on track with win over Petah Tikva

Beitar Jerusalem coach Menahem Koretzki breathed a huge sigh of relief on Thursday night after his team snapped a three-match losing streak with a 3-1 win over Hapoel Petah Tikva at Teddy Stadium.
Beitar had gone unbeaten in its first seven matches of the campaign, defeating Maccabi Haifa and Hapoel Tel Aviv while drawing with title hopefuls Ironi Kiryat Shmona and Hapoel Beersheba.
However, loses to Bnei Sakhnin, Hapoel Haifa and Maccabi Petah Tikva meant Beitar was under pressure entering Thursday’s contest against rock-bottom Hapoel Petah Tikva.
Jerusalem was far from impressive once more, but picked up a significant win thanks to goals from Claudemir (6), Shlomi Azulay (35) and Zarko Korac (76), with Mirko Oremus’s (36) strike of little consolation for Petah Tikva.
