Decider against relegation necessary in Division 1

A decider is necessary to decide which team will join San Gwann in Division 2 after Pietà Hotspurs and St. Patrick ended their commitments in the BOV First Division on level points.

Before Sunday’s games, the Hotspurs were lying three points ahead of the Saints and therefore a point would have been enough for Joe Grech’s side to secure their Division 1 status. However, Pietà lost 1-3 to Mosta.

On the other hand, St. Patrick defeated Melita 2-0 to join Pietà on the 17-points mark and therefore force a decider against relegation.
