Niksbu punt kontra Mosta FC

Data: 20 ta Marzu

Post: V. Tedesco (Hamrun)

Skor: 1 – 1

This drawn result suited neither St George’s nor Mosta as the chase for promotion is getting even hotter. 

Mosta, who leapfrogged Mqabba into second place in the standings on goal difference, were unlucky not to beat the Saints at the Tedesco Stadium yesterday as the Blues were denied three times by the woodwork.

St George’s had Emmanuel Sevasta missing and suffered another setback when the reliable Glenn Bonello sustained an injury and had to be replaced.

Mosta started on the offensive. Nikola Bogdanovic beat two defenders but was thwarted by Thomas Galea in the Saints goal.

A William Camenzuli free-kick fell into the path of Bogdanovic who hit high from a good position.

On 30 minutes, the Saints produced their first effort on goal, Milutinovic heading just wide from a free-kick.

Six minutes later, Mark Briggs released Simon Shead whose first-time effort was stopped by Galea.

Mosta, however, deservedly forged ahead four minutes later when Briggs hit home from a free-kick.

Before half-time, another Briggs free-kick was saved by Galea and Gilbert Martin’s fierce drive smashed against the bar.

The Saints levelled matters three minutes after the restart.

Kenneth Spiteri and goalkeeper Jonathan Debono failed to clear the ball and Dylan Zarb dashed in to score the equaliser.

Mosta were clearly shocked but they soon regained the initiative and started piling the pressure on the Saints’ defence.

On one occasion, a Camenzuli grounder hit the foot of the post and on 72 minutes, Mosta were again left to rue their luck as Ryan Deguara’s shot beat Galea but the ball came off the upright.

Shead was through late on but was foiled by goalkeeper Galea who was again on hand at the death to keep out a Lee Grima piledriver.

St George’s: T. Galea, A. Bonello (E. Amaira), D. Zammit, M. Milutinovic, N. Caruana (R. Sell), L. Agius, D. Zarb, B. Fenech, M. Barbara, L.J. Ruiz, G. Bonello (J. Dalli).

Mosta: J. Debono, K. Farrugia, V. Osobu (R. Deguara), M. Briggs, G. Martin, A. Cini, A. Borg, N. Bogdanovic, K. Spiteri, W. Camenzuli (L. Grima), S. Shead.

Referee: Clayton Pisani.

Man of the match: Mark Briggs (Mosta).
