Preview Day 30: Valletta vs Sliema W Published on: 17-04-2015
Valletta have a fight on their hands to maintain their charge for the runners-up spot as they face a Sliema Wanderers side without a number of regular players.
The Citizens’ 1-0 derby victory over Floriana came at a cost as leftback Ian Azzopardi suffered a broken
nose after being elbowed by Amadou Samb while Luke Dimech and Hamza Barry are suspended.
Midfielder Shaun Bajada and striker Djamel Leeflang are sidelined with injuries.
Sliema are still seething after throwing away a two-goal advantage against leaders Hibs who played with 10 men for most of the match.
Coach Stephen Azzopardi welcomes back in the fray Marko Potezica, who returns from suspension,
Italian midfielder Andrea Pisanu, who has recovered from a back injury, and wing-back Alex Muscat
who only lasted 14 minutes against Hibs due to illness.
The Sliema mentor must check on the fitness of Aidan Friggieri, Beppe Muscat and Michael Mifsud
who have been down with flu.
