Rabat Ajax and Zejtun Corinthians shared the spoils in a goalless draw in this weekend’s big match from the BOV Second Division.
In the second match, Mellieha were held in a 2-2 draw by Senglea Athletic. The Blues are therefore alone in second place, although they failed to narrow the gap with the leaders to just two points.
Zejtun lead with 33 points, followed by Mellieha on 29, Naxxar 28, Rabat 27, Birzebbuga 24, St. Patrick 23, Senglea, Gzira and Zebbug 17, San Gwann 15, Zurrieq 12 and Mgarr 7.
On Sunday, Birzebbuga and St. Patrick will hope to claim more important points in the battle for promotion as they take on Zebbug and Zurrieq respectively.
