Panathinaikos FC maintained their title hopes with a 2-1 win against Iraklis FC on Saturday.

Panathinaikos fight back
The Athens club kept in touch with local rivals Olympiakos Piraeus FC after coming from behind to win 2-1 against Iraklis at the OAKA Spiros Louis stadium. The visitors broke the deadlock in the 26th minute through Giorgos Karagiannis, but second-half goals from Angelos Basinas and Emmanuel Olisadebe clinched victory.

Battling draw for Panahaiki
Elsewhere, basement club Panahaiki GC showed their fighting spirit as they salvaged a vital point in a 1-1 draw with Panionios GS. Apostolos Mantzios fired the visitors into a 27th-minute lead but Panahaiki - one point adrift of second-bottom Akratitos - fought their way back and Michalis Lignos equalised in the 64th minute.
