The BOV Premier League resumes on Friday following a two-week break due to the quarter-finals of the U*BET FA Trophy and the EURO 2012 qualifier between Malta and Greece with the Relegation Pool clash between Vittoriosa Stars and Hibernians at the Hibs Stadium, kick-off at 19:30.
Vittoriosa have to beat the Paolites in order to maintain alive their slim hopes of avoiding relegation. Lying eight points behind Qormi, the Stars have to win the last three matches and hope that Qormi fail to collect any points from the remaining matches.
The Paolites won the last three matches, defeating Vittoriosa 2-1, Sliema 1-0 and Qormi 4-3. Vittoriosa, on the other hand, lost their last four league matches. In the first phase, they had defeated Hibernians 2-0 and 2-1.
The two coaches will be unable to field their best formation as Vittoriosa duo Steve Wellman and Edison Luis Dos Santos and Hibernians defenders Ryan Camilleri and Aaron Xuereb are all suspended.
