Preview Day 15: Valletta vs Balzan Published on: 12-12-2015

Valletta are in high spirits after their rousing win over Birkirkara but coach Paul Zammit will have warned his players against complacency ahead of their tough clash with Balzan.

Now five points adrift of joint-leaders Valletta and Hibs, Balzan are desperate to get their season back on track after their loss to Tarxien.

Valletta left-back Ian Azzopardi is gunning for a first-team recall after suspension kept him out of the Birkirkara game.

Balzan coach Oliver Spiteri is still without Montenegrin strikers Bojan Kaljevic and Aleksandar Vujacic, both injured, but Colombian defender Elkin Serrano Valero returns from suspension.

Ryan Fenech is set to make his first appearance this season against his former club after completing his recovery from a hernia problem.

In midweek, Balzan edged Fgura United 1-0 in the FA Trophy.

First round: Balzan vs Valletta 1-0.
