Maccabi Tel Aviv were held to a goalless draw by Hapoel Hadera on Saturday and coach Vladimir Ivic summed up his feelings about the game.

“We did not play well today and we didn’t create enough chances, at least not until the final minute. It was not enough to win and we will have to be better in our next game and show what we can do”. 

“We tried to score and we had several chances but as I said, we must be better in our execution from the first to the 95th minute”.

 Ivic said he was impressed and humbled by the Maccabi’s fans continuous support and asked them to keep it up: “We ask them to carry on. We work hard and are playing for them. It’s much easier when they are behind us.”
