Panserraikos, Panegialios, and Kallithea each failed to pick up three points over the weekend and continue to inch closer to relegation. Anagennisi Karditsas and Aiginiakos played to a goalless draw in a relegation six pointer.
Panserraikos remained in 14th place on 28 points after tasting a narrow 2:1 defeat on the road against Trikala. The result leaves the Serres side eight points away from safety.
One strong half was enough for AOX Kissamikos to down Panegialios 2:0 in Crete. The hosts remain in fourth place with 51 points, trailing third placed Panachaiki by nine points, and lead fifth placed Doxa Dramas by just one point. Panegialios are far down the table with just 24 points and will need a miracle to avoid relegation.
Kallithea played to a goalless draw on the road against Sparti, but the result will do them no favors. The Athenian club have only 23 points from 28 matches and like Panegialios, will need extraordinary things to happen for them not to avoid the drop.
In a relegation six pointer, Aiginiakos and Anagennisi Karditsas played to a goalless draw. The result keeps both teams tied on 36 points for the final safety spot. The two teams trail next in line Sparti and Ergotelis, who each have 39 points in the standings.
In other action, Doxa Dramas defeated mid table Apollon Larissas 1:3 on the road. OFI and Aris also secured their place in next year’s Greek SuperLeague with wins over Apollon Pontou and AE Karaiskakis, respectively.
Ergotelis and Panachaiki were awarded all three points against Veria and Acharnaikos, who have both withdrawn from the league.
