Oliver Abrahamson’s double inspired Leeds Maccabi 2nd to their second win of the season following a hard-fought victory over basement boys Rodley Barge.

Simon Fisher’s side moved six points clear of Barge at the foot of the table after coming out on top in a five-goal thriller.

Abrahamson’s 19th minute strike gave the home side the lead, only for Rodley Barge to draw level just before the break.

Nick Vale’s stunning 20-yard drive put Maccabi back in control but the visitors hit back once again to level proceedings.

But with 20 minutes remaining, the impressive Abrahamson slammed home from the penalty spot to ensure the points.
