Preview - Day 14 Valletta vs Pembroke Published on: 03-12-2016

Valletta vs Pembroke

Valletta coach Paul Zammit is concerned about the fitness of three key players as Steve Borg, Valdo Alhinho and Michael Mifsud all picked up knocks in the goalless stalemate against Mosta.
Captain Jonathan Caruana has been down with flu but, on the plus side, Zammit is boosted by the return from suspension of striker Federico Falcone and midfielder Claudio Pani for their must-win clash with bottom side Pembroke this afternoon at the Tedesco Stadium (16.15).
The Citizens are under pressure to get back to winning ways after falling five points off the top. Pembroke, bottom of the class with seven points, can’t afford a repeat of their lame performance in the 4-0 loss to Balzan if they want to give Valletta a good run for their money.
Serbian defender Zoran Levnaic and Italian midfielder Paltemio Barbetti are back from suspension for Pembroke.
First round: Valletta vs Pembroke 5-1.
