Preview: 28th Match vs Mosta Published on: 06-04-2013
Valletta will be aiming for a win against Mosta this afternoon at the National Stadium kick-off 17:00hrs. The Citizens are coming from a series of negative results during the Championship Pool.
It’s nearly game over for Valletta as their defence of the Premier League title has finally collapsed, last Saturday they lost to an excellent Hibernians side. Valletta lost nine precious points during the last three matches against Tarxien Rainbows, Birkirkara and Hibernians.
Last Sunday president Victor Sciriha stated that he will step down as president of the club. On Monday Sciriha reversed his decision to quit, following pressure from supporters. A considerable number of fans also appeared at the Club premises urging him to stay. Sciriha also stated that discussions are underway with foreign investors who are keen to link up with Valletta next season.
Coach Mark Miller will have to do without Belgian defender Jason Vandelannoite, he was dismissed during the first half of the match by the referee, last Saturday during the Valletta – Hibernians clash. Defender Jonathan is suspended after collecting his fourth yellow card. International defender Luke Dimech returns for the Citizens after serving a one-match suspension.
