Preview UBet FA Trophy vs Hamrun S Published on: 01-12-2012

Valletta will kick off their U*Bet FA Trophy commitments tomorrow against Hamrun Spartans, kick-off 16:00hrs at the National Stadium.

During the past two season Valletta missed the FA Trophy, in the 2011 final the Citizens lost the final   1-0 to rivals Floriana and last season they were surprisingly beaten 4-3 by Qormi in a thrilling semi-final.

Having failed to win in their last five outings, the Citizens are desperate for a victory tomorrow but they are also aware that an early elimination from the FA Trophy would deepen their crisis.

─Žamrun Spartans are coming from four straight defeats in the league against Floriana, Balzan Y., Hibernians and Sliema Wanderers.

The two teams last faced each other during the U*Bet FA Trophy 2010 semi final, Valletta reached the final by eliminating the Spartans 6-5 on penalties. 

In their last meeting between the two teams during the BOV Premier League,  Valletta registered an impressive win with an 8-2 scoreline. The Spartans will surely try to revenge over the Whites tomorrow in the Trophy.
