Gilman inspires Leeds late show

    Adam Gilman's late winner rounded off a pulsating nine-goal thriller as Leeds Maccabi edged out AFC Waggon 5-4 in the Sunday Alliance Premier Division.

    Midfielder Gilman headed home deep into injury-time to send boss Ian Selwyn into raptures.

    Maccabi had led on four occasions, only for Waggon to hit back each time to level the game.

    But Gilman's late show left the visitors shattered and left Selwyn to reflect on a breathless contest.

    "It was a really crazy game," said the Leeds boss.

    "It was a great contest, really unbelievable in conditions which really weren't great for football.

    "Both teams played some really nice football, but when Adam scored at the end, well, the celebrations really started.

    "I'm really thrilled with the win and if we can win our games in hand then we can still catch the league leaders."

    Maccabi are 12 points behind leaders New Ireland Wood, but have played three games fewer .

    Defender Steven Berke scored twice, including a stunning effort from his own half, while there were also goals for Elliot Jackson and Rob Brown.

    Jackson also netted a spectacular own-goal before making amends.

    "It was a great win and hopefully we can finish the year with another on Sunday against Republic International," said Selwyn.

    "We'd like to go out on a high, then come back for our first game in the new year ready to build on our good work."
