Preview: Victoria Hotspurs vs Xewkija Tigers




This weekend will be an important weekend for title-aspiration teams Ghajnsielem, Kercem Ajax and Xewkija Tigers. Xewkija Tigers will face Victoria Hotspurs while Ghajnsielem and Kercem Ajax face each other. The Tigers will face this encounter from nearby as it affects their chances for the title but first they must win against Victoria Hotspurs. Although the Reds have their chances for the title limited they didn’t throw the towel yet and showed this in the January transfer market. Out went captain Daniel Farrugia but they also signed attacker Michael Camilleri (ex Vittoriosa Stars), Manuel Buttigieg (ex Qala Saints) and Angelo Brignoli (ex Sannat Lions). Although they suffered the loss of striker Miguel Montana, they signed former St.Lawrence Spurs striker Sunday Baala.

After the comeback against Kercem Ajax and the semi-final win against SK Victoria Wanderers from the KO, Xewkija will try to keep pressure on Ghajnsielem and Kercem Ajax by winning this important game. For this game, defender Peter Paul Buttigieg is suspended while Christian Bugeja is still injured. Probably, Czech defender will take his place at the back instead of Buttigieg accompanied by Josmar Vella. In front Dene Shields is expected to partner Johnny Camilleri. In the last match played in the league, Xewkija Tigers won 2-1 in a very tight match with the goals being scored by Daniel Bogdanovic and Thierry Fidjeu Tazameta.

The game will be played on Sunday 14th Febuary 2016 at the Gozo Stadium. Kick-off time: 13:00.
