Preview - Day 08 Valletta vs Gzira Published on: 14-10-2016

Champions Valletta will be going all out to snap a run of four games without a win when they take on Gżira United this evening at the Tedesco Stadium (17.15).
The Whites have slipped eight points behind leaders Balzan after taking only two points from their last four league outings but coach Paul Zammit will be hopeful that his team embark on a winning run after being hit hard by injuries and suspensions over the past five weeks.
Midfielder Roderick Briffa and goalkeeper Nicky Vella are sidelined for Valletta after both had cruciate operations but all other players in Zammit’s squad are available for selection.
Newly-promoted Gżira United are coming from a creditable 1-1 draw against Hibs and trail Valletta by only two points.
Coach Branko Nisevic could be without a host of players as Brazilian strikers Robert and Joceano, Dyson Falzon, Andre White and John Nwoba are beset by injuries.
