ANDY SCHREUR - Thursday, February 7, 2013
Only one American is likely to see meaningful action this weekend as the Israeli season nears its final month.
Ironi Kiryat Shmona - Hapoel Ramat Gan
Bryan Gerzicich returns to Ironi Kiryat Shmona as they take on Hapoel Ramat Gan on Saturday.
Gerzicich missed last week's draw with Hapoel Acre due to yellow card accumulation but will likely return to his starting place in the Kiryat Shmona lineup as the Israeli season winds down.
Kiryat Shmona are currently sitting in seventh place but could jump as high as a tie for fourth with a win. There are only five matches left in the Israeli season as the defending champions try to get their struggling offense going.
Ramat Gan is sitting in 12th place and very near the relegation zone and has not won since January 5th.
Kiryat Shmona may be without Elad Gabbay, who may be transferred to Maccabi Tel Aviv any day as the transfer window remains open in Israel.
Leonard Krupnik is not likely to suit up for Maccabi Netanya as they play Bnei Yehuda this weekend.
