After the last match’s drama, Xewkija Tigers will face again a relegation threatened squad; St.Lawrence Spurs. Xewkija must learn a lot from the game against Sannat and surely must commit to a different approach in order to escape any blushes. On the other hand, Xewkija have gathered four wins in a row and this will certainly help the team add to its momentum. This week defender Miroslav Gegic was released from the club while the return of Czech defender Martin Hrubsa is imminent. St.Lawrence aren’t new for Xewkija this season. Three encounters have been played already this season and in all three encounters Xewkija have managed to win with a big margin. In the first game of the new season Xewkija beat the Spurs 4-1; a game valid for the First Division KO.
In the league match of the first round, the Tigers ended up winners 5-1. The most recent match was that in the GFA Cup played a month ago where Xewkija emerged as winners 6 goals to 2. A win for the Tigers will put them on 22 points and will continue putting pressure on the Youngsters.
At the moment St.Lawrence are lying in 7th place, four points more than last-placed Sannat Lions and two points far from SK Victoria Wanderers. In the first round, the Spurs managed to win against SK Victoria Wanderers and draw against Sannat Lions and Oratory Youths. Obviously the thirst for points is there but their minds might be set for their encounter against fellow relegation battlers Sannat Lions which is due after the Xewkija match. In Sunday’s match, the Tigers will meet up against three of their players who are out on loan: Fabian Xuereb, Shaun Mizzi and goalie Joseph Grima. Apart those three, the Tigers’ main attention has to be given to Brazilian veteran William Barbosa. The Brazilian maestro has scored 5 goals this season although he rarely plays in the forward line. Besides he possesses vast experience where he played with Valletta FC and Tarxien Rainbows in Malta and Verona and Como in Italy, Barbosa has notable technical abilities which can cause problems to opposite teams. Matthias Michael Uzor is expected to take the other foreigner’s spot after featuring in the last game against Nadur Youngsters in place of Mambaye Boye.
The game will be played next Sunday 21st December 2014 at Sannat Ground. Kick-off time: 13:00.
Games played against St.Lawrence Spurs: 34
Xewkija T. wins: 25
St.Lawrence S. wins: 8
